Help KCSO Identify Two Robbery Suspects
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects responsible for two armed robberies that occurred last month.
The first robbery happened on July 16th around 11:00 p.m. when an unidentified female entered the AM/PM Market on Gov. John Sevier Highway and asked a clerk to use the telephone. After completing the call, the suspect demanded cash from the clerk while insinuating she had a gun. She fled in a vehicle that was parked in the Pilot parking lot. The vehicle is believed to be an older model mid-sized sedan, possibly a Ford Taurus or Tempo. The suspect appears to be a white female in her late teens, approximately 5’7”, 120-130 pounds, with brown hair. She was wearing blue gym shorts with a yellow stripe on each side, a black hoodie over a t-shirt, and tennis shoes at the time of the robbery.
The second robbery occurred on July 20th around 10 a.m. when an unidentified female entered the Subway on Riverview Crossing Drive and demanded cash from a clerk in the same manner presented by the AM/PM Market robbery suspect. The suspect appears to be a white female 23-25 years old, approximately 5’10” and 135 pounds, with brown hair. She has a tattoo that appears to wrap completely around her left wrist. She was wearing a grey t-shirt, red basketball shorts, a white do-rag, and green Chuck Taylor-type tennis shoes at the time of the robbery.
The AM/PM Market robbery occurred in the county, while the Subway robbery occurred in the city. Detectives with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and the Knoxville Police Department are working together, as the similarities between the two cases suggest that the robberies were committed by the same pair of suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call the KCSO at (865) 215-2243.
