Two Memphis residents are facing charges following a man-hunt last month for a man wanted in connection to a stabbing in Memphis.
According to the Memphis Police Department, Julie M. Forquer, 19, and Robert L. Young, 39, of #17 Ridge Road Trailer Court in Memphis, have been ticketed with the class E felony of hindering prosecution of a felony. The tickets were filed April 5th.
Court documents indicate that on March 20th, officers from the Memphis Police Department were at the mobile home in connection with a search for Curtis Cousins, who was being sought in relation to a stabbing that occurred earlier in the day.
Investigators reportedly had located Cousins’ vehicle parked at the neighboring mobile home and had been monitoring the property for his presence.
Initial contact at the #16 Ridge Road Trailer Court residence led them to the neighboring mobile home.
Forquer allegedly answered the door and told the police that neither Cousins, or her boyfriend, Robert L. Young, were present in the mobile home. She reportedly gave consent for a walk-through of the property, at which time, Young was located in a small room. He allegedly stated several times that Cousins was not present in the mobile home, a fact that the investigators refuted based on observation of shadows moving around behind another closed door.
The investigators ultimately determined Cousins was in fact hiding in that bathroom area and he was apprehended without further incident, on what proved to be the department’s third trip to the residence seeking to locate the suspect in a felony assault case.
Forquer was taken into custody on the felony warrant. She is currently being housed in the Clark County Detention Center on a $10,000 cash-only bond.
She was scheduled to appear in court on April 9th, but a continuance was granted by the court moving the preliminary hearing to May 15.
Young has not been located and currently is wanted on the Cass E felony warrant. Anyone knowing his whereabouts is asked to contact the police department at 660-465-2612.
