Violent Crimes Division detectives today charged Jason Bell, 29, with two counts of attempted murder, carjacking, aggravated assault, vehicle theft, and evading arrest in connection with a crime spree Wednesday afternoon/evening that began with the critical stabbings of a man and a woman at a homeless camp off of Donelson Pike at I-40.
A Goodlettsville resident called police to report a person “dressed like a ninja” was attempting to break into his work vehicle. Officers quickly located 20-year-old Christopher Brimm nearby. Police say he was easily identifiable, as he was wearing all black clothing with a balaclava covering his head and face, gloves, and carrying a duffle bag with a headlamp style flashlight and large knives and a machete. Brimm stated he was homeless and sometimes “explored” homes he believed to be abandoned. He was charged with attempted auto burglary and possession of burglary tools after his bag contained various tools including picking tools, a Dremel, and pliers. A commissioner set his bond at $2,000.
