Friday, 26 October 2018

In a joint investigation, the Major Crimes Unit of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and the Knoxville
Police Department are asking for your help in identifying three black males and one white male who are involved in two separate home invasion style robberies in the county and a similar one in the city last night.  The first robbery occurred on October 12 off Highland Crest Way and another on October 20 off Sweetview Way.  The suspects, all armed with firearms, forced entry into the occupied residences and made demands for narcotics and money.  The victims in both robberies said that at least one suspect indicated to the other suspects that they were in the wrong residences.  Each robbery resulted in personal property taken from the victims.  In the October 20 incident, a firearm was discharged resulting in property damage.  In a similar style robbery in the city Thursday night, the armed suspects forced their way into a residence on Clinch Avenue demanding money and narcotics.  They beat the residents and took their personal property.

The suspects are identified as the following: The three black males are of average height and weight, but one has longer dred locks and tattoos and the white male is tall and skinny with longer brown hair.

Black male, 5’10”, 170 pounds, braided hair, dark clothing

Black male, 5’9”, 160 pounds, short, spiked braided hair

White male, 5’10”-6”, 170 pounds, blue tattoo on left side of neck as well as one on his face

The vehicle at both scenes is described as a 2005 or 2008 Ford Escape, gray or silver.
