31-year-old Zein Sheikh was out on a $75,000 bond for cocaine charges when he was arrested again this week, now additionally charged with felony aggravated assault/strangulation of his co-defendant in the cocaine case, Kally Dobak. He also had Kally arrested for assault the week prior to them both being indicted on the cocaine charges. In the new case against Sheikh, which was captured on building security cameras, he comes into the hallway in his underwear and pulls Dobak into their apartment, placing her into a choke-hold during an argument.
Just after 1 a.m. Sunday, police responded to the lobby of the apartments at 1515 Demonbreun Street in downtown Nashville and met with 30-year-old Matthew Godwin. The concierge had asked Godwin multiple times to return to his residence due to his level of intoxication and harassment of another resident who was in the lobby. Officer Ricardo Cruz escorted the man upstairs to his apartment and informed him if he returned to the lobby in his current state, he could be arrested. Five minutes later, Godwin was back in the lobby causing issues. He was transported to booking.
