Police are searching for people of interest after a woman was sexually assaulted, officials say


Police are looking for five men who were spotted on surveillance video the night a woman says she was brutally sexually assaulted.

Police did not call the suspect men but named them as persons of interest in the case.

The victim of the Nov. 7 assault has come forward and spoken with FOX13. She chose to remain anonymous, but said the men forced her to do things she didn’t consent to at a local club.

The Memphis Police Department recently released surveillance photos of the men suspected of being part of a local motorcycle club.

According to the police, these men are persons interested in a sexual assault.

The police report lists the charge associated with the investigation as forced buggery.

“They were guys holding me down while they took turns doing this. I just want my life back. I want to go back to how I was. I don’t want to look over my shoulder,” the woman told FOX13, as she painfully recalled that horrible night.

Police were dispatched to King Riders Motorcycle Club that night around 2am on November 07, 2021. The woman told FOX13 that what was supposed to be a night of fun quickly turned into a nightmare.

“They grabbed me. It’s a picnic table in front of the club door; that’s where they put me, and they forced themselves on me,” she said.

The woman told FOX13 that she was so traumatized that she lost count of the number of men in the group.

“I don’t remember it was a group of them, seven or eight,” she said.

According to the victim, after throwing her on the picnic table and forcing her into acts of sodomy, the men had other plans. She said they tried to rip off her pantyhose, but luckily another stranger intervened.

“I was wearing fishnet leggings, the ones I have here in my hand with holes, of them trying to reach me. It was a guy behind me. He cursed them and that’s when they let me go.

She adds that, since the meeting, life is no longer the same for her.

“Waking up in a cold sweat. I started therapy for it; it helps here and there, but it doesn’t erase what happened, the memories, the thoughts. I just hope it doesn’t happen to anyone else.

Police are now asking anyone who recognizes the men in the photos to help identify them. A cash reward of up to $2,000 is offered upon arrest. Call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
