There's a typo or a missing couple of words in your narrative that makes this confusing to try to answer.

Are you asking if someone who is extorting your brother can still report the robbery to the police two weeks after the event? If so, the answer is yes.

The complainant would have until the statute of limitations runs out on the charge to report the crime and try to get charges pressed. In Tennessee, that means the complainant would have three years from the incident to report the robbery.

Whether it would be wise to do so if the complainant was also engaging in unlawful acts against the defendant is another matter and would depend upon more evidence than I have at this time.

If this is not what you wanted to know, please clarify your question in a reply to this question thread.
