Police: Man, woman threatened driver with knife, stole his car
Two people are behind bars after holding a man at knifepoint and taking his car, police said.
Tuesday, according to an arrest citation, Justin MacKenzie Collins and Lindsey Rose asked a man to meet them at the Speedy Mart on 25E in Corbin.
When the man arrived, Corbin Police said Rose got in the passenger seat and Collins got in the back seat. Collins then allegedly pulled out a knife and demanded the victim drive them somewhere.
The victim was able to get out of the car before the two drove off, police said. After officers tracked down the car on Ott Road in Knox County, the duo ran off on foot.
Corbin Police later found Rose. London Police arrested Collins on a separate charge Wednesday February 13, 2019.
