She is one of two juvenile suspects who allegedly stole a vehicle by force in the 5300 block of Dorsey Street, leaving the victim with "serious bodily injuries" on April 23.

The victim told police that when he tried to reclaim his vehicle, the suspects quickly accelerated, dragging him, running him over and mutilating his foot. 

The second suspect, 17-year-old Jaden Mason, has yet to be located. 

Both suspects have been charged through juvenile court with especially aggravated robbery and attempted murder. And per Tennessee law, information about juveniles charged with especially aggravated robbery is not exempt from public record.
