CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

An 18-year-old Clarksville man has been identified as one of several suspects who robbed and assaulted two teens during a would-be drug buy earlier this week.

Clarksville police said instead of purchasing marijuana in the early morning hours Tuesday, the teens, ages 17 and 18, were robbed at gunpoint, forced to strip off their clothes and hand over their possessions.

Additionally, the 17-year-old was punched in the face and the 18-year-old was thrown to the ground.

The two teens walked to a nearby gas station for help.

Mark Ellis has been identified as the man the teens planned to meet.

An arrest warrant charging him with aggravated robbery has been issued.
 
Police are also working to identify the other suspects involved.

Anyone with information on Ellis's whereabouts is urged to call 911 or Clarksville police at 931-645-8477.
