MEMPHIS, TN ( - A Memphis man is behind bars after robbing two victims at gunpoint and threatening a third, stealing a car, and running from police on Christmas Day.

Police say around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 25 in the Fox Meadows area, a suspect kicked in the front door of a woman's apartment and forced her into a bedroom at gunpoint. The suspect took her car keys and left as her neighbor was walking out of his apartment; the suspect pointed his gun at the neighbor and demanded his wallet. In the apartment's parking lot, the suspect pointed his gun at a man getting out of his car and forced him to the ground, threatening to shoot him.

The suspect took off in the female victim's car, and police pulled him over a short distance away in the Hickory Hill area. The suspect ran from the vehicle, but was apprehended after a brief foot chase and struggle with officers. Police also found a handgun and a bag of marijuana during a search of the stolen car.

28-year-old Laquiney Flowers is charged with two counts of Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Burglary, Aggravated Kidnapping, Evading Arrest, Convicted Felon in Possession of a Handgun, Possession of a Firearm in Commission of a Felony, Possession of Marijuana, and Resisting Arrest.
