U.S. Marshals Capture Alleged Kidnapping Suspect

For immediate release

Memphis, TN – Joseph Brown, 32, was apprehended today in Mississippi by U.S. Marshals for charges of Aggravated Kidnapping and Domestic Assault.

The arrest stems from an incident on April 27, 2024, when Joseph Brown was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute with a woman. Memphis police responded to a call at the 3400 block of Grey Bark Drive reporting an abduction. A witness who was on the phone with the victim heard her shouting in distress before the call abruptly ended. The victim was missing for most of the day but was found later that evening. Warrants for Aggravated Kidnapping and Domestic Assault were promptly issued for Brown's arrest.

Earlier today, investigators from the U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force in Memphis located Brown at a residence on the 2600 block of Meadowbrook Drive in Horn Lake, Mississippi. Brown was taken into custody without incident and was transported to the Desoto County Detention Center where he will await the extradition process to Tennessee.

The U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force is a multi-agency task force within Western Tennessee. The TRVFTF has offices in Memphis and Jackson, and its membership is composed of Deputy U.S. Marshals, Shelby, Fayette, and Tipton County Sheriff’s Deputies, Memphis and Jackson Police Officers, Tennessee Department of Correction Special Agents, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Since 2021, the TRVFTF has captured over 2,600 violent fugitives and sexual predators.
