MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Two Memphis men are behind bars after being suspected in multiple carjackings in the area in late October.

Teterraine Woodhouse, 19 and Christian Cook, 19, are both facing charges regarding these investigations.

On Oct. 22 a victim advised police that he was driving three unknown women to a location when two men approached his vehicle -- one with a gun. The other suspect allegedly punched the victim in the face. The two then took the vehicle with the women inside and fled the scene.

Police received another call on Wednesday involving a stolen vehicle. The victim told police he left his car running while standing at an ATM. An unknown vehicle pulled alongside the victim’s vehicle, got in and drove away.

There were three other occurrences of thefts from Oct. 27 to Oct. 29, according to the affidavit.

On Oct. 30 Woodhouse became a suspect after police saw him running from one of the vehicles that had been reported stolen. Cook and a 16-year-old also became suspects in the investigation that same day.

Woodhouse is charged with two counts of carjacking, aggravated assault, theft of property and use of a firearm while committing a felony.

Cook is faced with two counts of theft of property, two counts of possession of firearm while committing a felony along with other charges.

The three were taken into custody on Friday where Woodhouse gave a written statement regarding his involvement in the robberies and thefts.
