NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have arrested a man accused of kidnapping, raping and robbing a Hohenwald woman last weekend.
Christopher Murray was arrested Friday on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated robbery.
Metro police responded to Plus Park Boulevard around 9 a.m. on August 9 after someone reported hearing a woman screaming for help.
When officers located the woman, they said she explained her car broke down, so she checked into a Murfreesboro Pike motel, while it was being repaired. She said she walked from the motel to a market, and was heading back to the motel, when a man pulled up in his minivan and offered her a ride. She told police he drove her behind a church on Plus Park Boulevard, pulled a knife, sexually assaulted her and took her cell phone.
Surveillance video from the area helped police identify Murray as the suspect. He was arrested and held on a $200,000 bond.
Anyone with information as to any other criminal activity involving Murray is urged to contact the Metro police’s Sex Crimes Unit at 615-862-7540.
