2 SCS teachers robbed at gunpoint, forced into trunk of their car

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Two Shelby County Schools teachers were robbed at gunpoint in their driveway and forced into the trunk of their car, according to Memphis Police Department.

The robbery happened just after 12 a.m. Sunday at the couple's home on Vista Drive. They had arrived home from a Saturday night concert when they were robbed.

"I'm just ultra thankful. I just know it was nobody but God," said the woman, who did not want to be identified.

Officers said the couple was approached by three black men wearing dark clothing and bandanas. The men instructed the couple to empty their pockets, taking their keys, a wallet, a purse, cash, and a cell phone. Next, they forced the couple to get into the trunk of their car.

"I couldn't see anything but their eyes and unfortunately their guns pointed at us," the victim said. "They told my husband to get in the trunk, the other gunman said, 'Get in the trunk,' and they said, 'You too.'"

The woman said she complied with their demands, hoping they wouldn't shoot.

The couple's 14-year-old son heard what was happening outside and called police. When police arrived on the scene, the couple had gotten out of the trunk, and the woman was being treated by Memphis Fire Department for an injury to her leg.

"Don't pull in your driveway if you see anything suspicious, just keep going," she warned others.

No arrests have been made yet. If you have information about this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
