Security guard claims attack in downtown Memphis

(WMC-TV) – A downtown Memphis security guard claims she was attacked and robbed in a parking garage after leaving her job Thursday.

The victim said she was approached from behind by a man who put a knife to her throat. He demanded her purse, then grabbed her by the back of the head and slammed her face into a car.

The woman said she called police as soon as she came to, which she guesses was about 30 minutes after she was knocked out.

Police say the victim had a cut to the left side of her neck, as well as a laceration under her left eye.

She was taken to The MED in non-critical condition.

Police have not said whether any arrests have been made in the attack.
