On February 3, 2018 at approximately 5:00pm, the Hendersonville Police Department responded to the area of Susan Drive in response to a robbery complaint. The victims stated that they contacted the suspects on an app known as “offer up”, to do repair work on a damaged vehicle that had body damage. The three suspects worked on the vehicle for about one hour before displaying a weapon and robbing the victim. One of the suspects is described as: White/Male, possibly middle eastern decent 6’-02” to 6’-03”, heavy set, round face and a groomed beard Gray pants, black jacket and a beanie hat (See the attach artist rendering) The other two suspects had very little interaction with the victim. During the investigation is was determined that there was about a two-hour delay in reporting the crime due to the fear that the victims had. The incident took place at about 3:00pm. They were operating a 2002 to 2006 royal blue minivan, possibly a Chrysler with factory wheels. Due to the circumstances in this crime it appears that it is possible that the suspects committed other crimes in the same manner.
