CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Clarksville Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted for assaulting and carjacking his ex-girlfriend.
Police said just before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, 32-year-old Cordero Quarles approached his ex-girlfriend while she sat in her car in Summit Heights. Quarles then allegedly kicked out the passenger side window of her car and took the car keys, went around the car, and dragged her out of the driver’s seat before driving off.
