Metro Police say 39-year-old Joshua Thomas Mumaw, from Atlanta, was fighting another man in the lobby of the Noelle Hotel in downtown Nashville Friday night. While attempting to break up the fight, a female member of the hotel staff was also assaulted. By the time police arrived, Mumaw was back in his room, and police explained he had been trespassed from the property and would have to leave. He refused, and while standing in the hallway of the hotel, Mumaw suddenly bent down to a squatting position and then launched his head backward, sticking Officer Krausman in his jaw, causing an injury.
As a young woman walked alone in Midtown late Monday evening, she says a man began to “cat all” her, and as she continued past him she says he firmly grabbed her arm. As she began to fight back, he reportedly told her he was going to rape her. She was able to break away from the man, identified as 30-year-old Patrick Schiebel, and flee to a nearby apartment building with a visible concierge who let her inside and called 911. Metro Nashville Police officers located the man but refused to charge him themselves since they didn’t witness it. MNPD escorted the victim to night court, where a magistrate signed a simple assault private prosecution warrant. The tourist was jailed for 153 minutes before being given pre-trial release and set free, despite a magistrate setting his bond at $10,000.
36-year-old tourist Joseph Miller is charged with domestic assault after Nashville police say he pushed his girlfriend over while inside the Noelle Hotel in downtown Nashville, causing visible injuries to her head, and property damage inside the room. Miller, who is from Maryland, is free on a $1,000 cash bond. #VisitMusicCity
