Nashville Man Charged with Kidnapping and Sexually Assaulting a Woman on Plus Park Boulevard Last Sunday Morning
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sex Crimes detectives today charged Christopher M. Murray, 49, of Reelfoot Court, with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated robbery for sexually assaulting a 43-year-old Hohenwald woman last Sunday morning.
Officers responded to the Plus Park Boulevard area at 9:10 a.m. on August 9th after a resident reported hearing a woman screaming for help. Officers located the woman who explained that her car had broken down and that she had checked into a Murfreesboro Pike motel while it was being repaired. She walked from the motel to a market last Sunday and was heading back to the motel when, she said, a man subsequently identified as Murray pulled up in his Kia minivan and offered her a ride. She reported that he drove her behind a church on Plus Park Boulevard, pulled a knife, sexually assaulted her and robbed her of a cell phone.
Video from surveillance cameras in the area greatly aided in the identification of Murray, who is jailed in lieu of $200,000 bond.
Anyone with information as to any other criminal activity involving Murray is asked to contact the MNPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at 615-862-7540.
