A Nashville music producer has been charged with kidnapping and assaulting a woman over the span of a week at his Joelton home.
Officers became aware of the kidnapping after the victim escaped from the home on White’s Creek Pike on Dec. 30 and flagged down a passerby for help.
Metro police reported 47-year-old Baeho “Bobby” Shin became angry with the woman on Christmas Eve after she smoked a cigarette inside his home.
According to the arrest affidavit, Shin threw the woman on the ground, struck her with a nearby vacuum and used its extension cord to choke her.
Shin is also accused of refusing to let her leave the home, forcing her to strip naked and tend to his needs for several days.
She was beaten again with a glass mug, which caused cuts to the back of her head, and her front teeth were chipped as a result of the beating, according to Metro police.
She was reportedly able to free herself by sneaking out of the home after telling Shin she was going to make him dinner.
According to Shin’s website, he owns The Library Studios, a music production site.
He’s worked with a number of artists including Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton and Kacey Musgraves, according to his website.
Shin has worked with a number of Christian music artists as well including Michael W. Smith and Casting Crowns. Reps for both say that while they have worked with him, they have no direct connection to Shin.
Shin was booked into the Metro jail and charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual battery. His bond was set at $150,000.
