22-year-old Alexander Campos was reportedly watching a movie at Opry Mills Mall theater with Grace Voss a couple of hours before police arrived for a sexual assault in progress. On July 9th, around 1:30 a.m., police arrived at the theater and spoke to Grace, who said she and Alexander were watching a movie around 10 p.m. While they were watching the movie, she said that Alexander put his arm around her, grabbed her thigh, moved his hand toward her genitals, placed her hand on his genitals, and fondled her inside her shirt.
All of these advances, she said, were met with her pulling his hand away and telling him that she did not want him to touch her. After she pulled his hand out of her shirt, he asked her if she wanted to leave with him. She refused, and Alexander began kissing her. Alexander also licked her ear, and she attempted to escape him, but he grabbed her by her throat, restricting her breathing for approximately sixty seconds. He said, “You like that, don’t you?” Grace tried texting her roommate for help with her Apple watch. She also went to the bathroom to try and call her roommate for help, but Alexander followed.
Out of fear that he would hear her due to his proximity to the bathroom, she did not answer the phone calls she received from her roommate. Shortly after, she exited the bathroom and returned to the theater with Alexander. Once the movie was over, she said that Alexander asked her to walk with him to his car in the parking lot. She refused and told him she did not drive but was waiting for her roommate to pick her up. He asked her to wait in his car; she told him he should just go and that she could wait alone. Alexander left, and her roommate arrived to pick her up; that is when the roommate contacted the police.
Alexander Giovanni Campos was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 19th, charged with aggravated assault with strangulation. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $20,000.
