MEMPHIS, Tenn.– Memphis Police released a bizarre picture of a man holding a large branch Monday with the hopes the public can help them track him down after a woman says her brother was attacked following a crash.
Officers said the guy and another man got into a crash with the driver of the pickup truck outside a gas station off Getwell.
Police said the men initially left, but returned with the large sticks, demanded money, and became aggressive. They said at one point they threw a concrete block at the driver and the truck, smashing the window before taking off again.
A woman, who didn’t want to be identified, spoke to us on behalf of her 26-year-old brother who was driving the truck.
“They started hitting his car with a stick and then after that, they tried to hit him so then he started running for help,” she said. “Right now he’s traumatized. He doesn’t want to go around the neighborhood.”
She said the incident has affected their whole family. Her brother helps provide for the family of seven. They depend on him and their father is blind. She hopes police can track down her brother’s attackers.
“That’s the truck he uses for work and right now he has to find a way to get to work,” the victim’s sister said. “I’m just scared. Like why would they do that? They could’ve tried to find a solution,” she said.
