MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The Memphis Police Department is searching for three suspects responsible for a robbery in the 200 block of Eastland Drive on Wednesday night.

According to police, the two women pulled up to their home in the Highpointe neighborhood around 11 p.m. and were approached just minutes later by 3-5 black males.

One woman said she started to open her door to get out when both women had a gun pointed at them.

Police said the men came from the front of the home and surprised the victims. 

"They told us not to freak out," the woman said. "We were coming home from dinner and three to five African-American males ran up to the car and held a gun on one side, opened her car door, and opened the passenger door, and held a gun to me and requested all of our belongings."

Home surveillance video shows the men on the front porch. The woman's husband was inside the home, but said he didn't know the men were outside.

"The girls pulled in and realized that was an easier target than trying to break into the house," the husband said. "Just ruins your peace of mind that something like this would happen."

The robbers ran off after taking keys, wedding rings, and other items from the women.

The women, who were too afraid to get out of the car, drove to a neighbor's house. The whole thing took seconds.

"It was scary," the woman said. 

Suspect 1 is described as a black male, 5'8'', thin build, 18-22 years old, medium complexion, short hair, goatee, white shirt, and was armed with a black handgun.

Suspect 2 is described as a black male, 6'0'', thin build, 18-22 years old, medium complexion, chin hair, white shirt, and was armed with a silver handgun.

Suspect 3 appeared to be of a darker complexion, with dreads and a camouflage scarf covering his face. It is unknown if he was armed.

"It makes me furious, makes my blood boil."

If you have any information on the suspects, you are asked to Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
