Crime Tracker

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 37-year-old woman was arrested days after her boyfriend was stabbed in the neck with a fork during an apparent argument in North Nashville.

Tanelle Simmons, 37, was charged Wednesday with aggravated assault.

Metro police responded Monday to the Nashville fire station on Dr. DB Todd Jr. Boulevard for a domestic disturbance.

The victim told officers that Simmons, his girlfriend, had been drinking and was “just mad,” so she tried to hit him while they were in a room on 21st Avenue North near Buchanan Street.

At some point, police said Simmons stabbed her boyfriend in the neck with a fork, leaving behind four small holes in the right side of his neck.

The two eventually made their way to the fire station, officers said.

Jail records show Simmons was also charged for violating orders of protection.
