MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Four people have been charged after police say they robbed, kidnapped and shot at a man they lured through a dating app.
Memphis police were called to meet a man at Methodist North Hospital on Nov. 15 after they said he had been kidnapped.
The man told police he was on a dating app called Mocospace and agreed to meet a woman by the screen name of Sonja at a Cordova apartment complex on Germantown Parkway. The woman was later identified as Jasmine S. Williams, police said.
According to police, the man had been communicating online with Williams for about five days.
Police said Williams opened the door for the man when he arrived, but once he stepped inside, he was confronted by a man and two other women.
The victim told police they two demanded his cell phone, car keys and wallet. When the man refused to hand off his belongings, police said all four suspects began assaulting him.
According to the crime report, the suspects, all armed with handguns, took his belongings and held him hostage while threatening to kill him. Police said the suspects then began arguing amongst each other about what to do with him.
The male suspect, Trevor Keys, then decided to put him in the trunk of a Honda Accord parked outside of the apartments, police said.
Police said the suspects came back and took him out of the truck and placed him in the backseat, while Keys held him at gun point. Keys also told the victim that they were about to torture and kill him, according to the affidavit.
Police said the suspects drove the man north on Singleton Parkway near Millington and stopped near a field.
As they exited the vehicle, the victim managed to escape and run into a wooded area. Multiple shots were fired towards him as he went to hide, police said.
Police said the suspects left the area after they couldn’t find the victim.
The man then walked to the hospital where he met with police.
Officers later located all four suspects inside of the Cordova apartment.
The other two female suspects were later identified as Nadia Townsend and Jasmine A. Williams.
All four of the suspects were charged with attempted first-degree murder, especially aggravated kidnapping, acting in concert: aggravated robbery, and employment of a firearm during dangerous felony.
