Memphis couple carjacked on Mud Island, suspects still at large

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Memphis couple was carjacked this weekend on Mud Island by two armed suspects who are still at large.

It is not unusual to see a lot of people on the north end of Mud Island looking at the Mississippi, walking or fishing.  It was there that two suspects carjacked a couple sitting in the bed of a truck later recovered by police.

Freeman Buckley said he comes to that spot almost everyday after work to walk.

"I'm very concerned about it," Buckley said.  "I thought it was a secure place.  That's why we come down here."

A man who said his name was Cornbread said he was been fishing here for 15 years.

"It's safe around here long as I've been coming here," he said.

According to the police report, the couple was in the back of the truck around 11 Sunday night when someone in a car dropped men off.  It was too dark to identify the vehicle.

The couple said the suspect walked past the bed of the truck, then turned around and walked back.  The couple said they then saw a gun.

The suspects reportedly said, "get out of the truck and give me everything."  The woman was forced to lie face down on the ground.  The suspects took her keys, cell phone, and then covered her with a blanket.

The man was also told to lie face down on the ground.  The suspects also took his keys and cell phone.  The suspects then got in the truck and drove off.

The woman involved in the carjacking was at 201 Poplar Wednesday looking at photos of suspects.

No one was injured in the carjacking.
