MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department has arrested one suspect in connection to the brutal assault that took place downtown Friday morning.

Tony McKinney, 29, is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, especially aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated sexual battery.

A person of interest has also been developed. Investigators are looking for Antonie Neely, 25, who is believed to have information related to this investigation.

Saturday night, MPD released images and descriptions of the four suspects they say are responsible for the attack.

Police said they located surveillance video from local businesses that showed the victims walking over to a group of men who were standing in the center of North Main Street near the trolley tracks.
