Itavia Drake says her boyfriend, 29-year-old Tykylan Walker, came home agitated during his lunch break and accused her of cheating on him. She says he pushed her with his shoulder and told her to get away from their child, before pushing her to the ground and strangling her with both his hands around her neck until she was unable to breathe. He then reportedly threatened to kill her as he left the apartment to return to work. Police documents multiple injuries on the victim and took out warrants for Walker, who was taken into custody just a few hours later.
Tykylan Walker was booked into Metro Nashville Jail on April 6th, charged with felony aggravated assault/strangulation. He is free on a $5,000 bond to his 180 Wallace Road address in Nashville, TN.
