NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Three people with outstanding warrants for rape were added to Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list this week.
Of the suspects newly added to the list, two of them are accused of sexually abusing children.
The list is updated every Wednesday on the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) Criminal Warrants Division Facebook page. Those who appear on the list are often considered violent offenders.
Many of them have outstanding warrants for crimes like homicide and child sexual abuse. Some have appeared on the list for multiple weeks in a row. However, public exposure has helped police capture a number of wanted fugitives.
At least 13 people who have appeared on Nashville’s ‘Most Wanted’ have been arrested since mid-October 2022 when the MNPD first began publishing the list.
Three people wanted on charges for rape, burglary and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon were taken into custody within the first week of January.
Below are the suspects who made Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list the week of Jan. 18.
