Crimetracker: KCSO asking for help identifying 2 robbery suspects

KNOX COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help identifying two women responsible for two armed robberies in July.

The first robbery happened on July 16th around 11:00 p.m. when a woman entered the AM/PM Market on Gov. John Sevier Highway and asked a clerk to use the telephone. After completing the call, she t demanded cash from the clerk while insinuating she had a gun. She left in an older model mid-sized sedan, possibly a Ford Taurus or Tempo. The woman is described as 5’7”, 120-130 pounds, with brown hair in her late teens.

The second robbery occurred on July 20th around 10 a.m. when a woman entered the Subway on Riverview Crossing Drive and demanded cash from a clerk the same way as the suspect in the AM/PM Market robbery suspect. The suspect is described as 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.

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.
