33-year-old Ramone Dickson was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated rape, robbery, and weapon possession charges after forcing a Clarksville man to swap oral sex acts with each other at gunpoint and then damaging his orbital socket. Clarksville police have received multiple reports of assaults via dating apps this week.
On August 24th, Clarksville Police Detective Kellett was dispatched to Tennova Medical Center where a victim waited to explain what happened with Ramone Dickson. He was picked up by Dickson from Governor’s Square Mall and taken to Gateway Inn and Suites where he had gotten a room, just a few hundred feet from a Clarksville Police station. Once in the room, Dickson pulled out a pistol and said, “lay down or I’ll shoot you.”
He then performed oral sex on the man who was also forced to perform fellatio on Dickson, the firearm within reach the whole time. Afterward, Dickson punched the man in the face multiple times causing damage to his right orbital socket, which may need surgery. He then forced the man into the driver’s seat of the gold SUV and made him drive to a business located on Providence Boulevard where Dickson made the man get out, leaving his property behind.
On August 26th, Ramone Dickson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, aggravated rape, robbery, and possession of a weapon during a felony. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $300,000 bond.
Clarksville Police report receiving multiple reports of victims being assaults after meeting individuals from dating apps over the past week.
