A Memphis “good Samaritan” was beaten and robbed of his car, with his dog still inside, after stopping to help two men posing as people in need.

The incident occurred Saturday at a Shell gas station on Summer Avenue when two strangers approached the victim, claiming they were out of gas and money, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) reported.

As the victim attempted to fill a gas jug for the suspects’ silver Chevrolet sedan, the men “attacked him,” striking him multiple times with guns, police stated.

The suspects then stole the victim’s keys, with one fleeing in the victim’s black 2006 Chevrolet Silverado, which had his brown Labrador retriever inside. The other suspect followed in their sedan, according to MPD.

Police provided descriptions of the suspects:

Suspect #1: Black male, 18-21 years old, 5’7” to 5’10”, wearing a black hoodie with red and white writing, and black and white jeans.

Suspect #2: Black male, 18-21 years old, 5’6” to 5’9”, wearing a gray hoodie with blue and white writing, and blue jeans.

On Tuesday, police announced that the victim’s dog, Hershey, was “located safe” in the 5000 Block of Willow Springs Drive.

“We’re making plans to reunite the victim with his dog. This is an ongoing investigation,” officials said.

A heartwarming photo from FOX13 Memphis shows the moment Hershey was reunited with its owner, Zachary Murphree.

The stolen Silverado and the two suspects have yet to be located. Police encourage citizens to reach out with any tips.
