  • Terrell Holley was allegedly pretty busy on Sunday night.
Terrell Holley, 17, is allegedly one of the hardest-working teens in St. Louis. While most of us the city slept Sunday night, Holley was purportedly committing a one-man crime wave that stretched from downtown to the Central West End to South Hampton and finally ended in Goodfellow Terrace.

Holley's evening of larceny allegedly began at 1:15 p.m. near Eighth and Walnut streets, when he held up two women in a black Jeep. Police say Holley ordered them out of the Jeep but to leave a purse in the vehicle, and threatened to shoot them if they didn't comply. Considering recent crimes in town, the women obeyed. Holley than allegedly took off in the Jeep.

Police say Holley next struck in the 4900 block of Buckingham Court in the Central West End near 2:45 a.m., when he drove slowly by a woman who was out walking. Holley allegedly jumped out of the Jeep, demanded the woman's backpack and cell phone, and fled once again in the vehicle.
