Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

UPDATE: According to Metro Police, the arrest warrant for 19-year-old Ivy Dobson for his alleged involvement in the attempted robbery of a 66-year-old at the Opry Mills Mall parking lot has been made inactive.
While the warrant has not been dismissed pending further investigation, police now believe one of the persons in the case is in custody already in another jurisdiction for unrelated charges. The determination to inactivate the warrant for Dobson comes after several hours of investigation and discussion with the District Attorney's Office. Dobson had turned himself in to police yesterday after learning about the warrant for his arrest. 

Original Report: Metro Police detectives in Hermitage are searching for Ivy Larue Dobson, 19, who no has an arrest warrant for attempted aggravated robbery stemming from an altercation at Opry Mills Mall. 

On Tuesday, Dobson reportedly approached a 66-year-old woman after she entered her car. He opened the driver's door, put a gun to her neck and ordered her to remove her seatbelt. 

But instead of following instruction, the woman tried to gouge the man's eyes with her thumbs. Dobson fled to a gold colored car parked nearby. 

After officers reviewed surveillance video of the Opry Mills parking lot, Dobson was identified as the suspect. He is last known to have lived with his parents on Hawks Nest Drive. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 74-Crime, send a tip via text by texting the word "CASH" along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES), or visit
