GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (WMC) - The Germantown Police Department has arrested two suspects accused of attempting to kidnap a woman from the Saddle Creek parking lot in December.

Police say two male suspects physically detained a woman as she attempted to enter a vehicle in the parking lot.

The suspects were then confronted by a bystander and then released the victim before driving off in a silver four-door car occupied by a third male suspect, according to police.

Both Malone and Pegues are due in court on Tuesday.
