It happened about 9:45 p.m. in the 800 block of Cooper Street.

He said one of the suspects pointed a gun at him and demanded property from both victims. He said one of the guys told them to lay on the ground, and that one of the suspects punched him twice in the jaw as he was getting down to the ground.
The suspects took the victim’s property, including the keys to one of the victim’s girlfriend’s car, which they took off in. The car is a 2013 Mazda CX-9 with TN license plate S1919D. The victims walked to Celtic Crossing, where they called police.
