• At 2:40 p.m., Sunday, July 26, a complainant called Knox County Sheriff’s Office Teleserve Unit to report her items stolen from Campbell Station Mini Warehouse, 11825 Snyder Road. Complainant advised the witness opened her storage unit with permission at 4 p.m., Wednesday, July 22, for the suspect. Suspect was buying items from the complainant and was advised to send a picture of the items she wanted to purchase. Complainant advised the picture was sent and she agreed to accept $10 dollars for the items in the picture only.

Complainant advised the witness sent her a picture at 6:15 p.m., July 22, questioning the low dollar amount of money requested for the amount of items in her vehicle. Complainant advised the picture he had sent did not match the picture sent by the suspect. Complainant advised she told the suspect she needed to pay her more or bring back the listed items. Value of items taken was listed at $330, which included an air conditioner valued at $200. Complainant advised she had only agreed to the items in the first picture, and said the suspect messaged the witness advising she had “ripped her off,” and they should not call the police.

• At 4:10 a.m., Friday, July 24, officers responded to a Crown Point Drive residence regarding an assault, and made contact with victim, who said the eventual arrestee approached him from behind, in an upstairs room, and wrapped a rope around his neck. Officers observed redness around the victim’s neck, which was consistent with the account given, and the victim said he was having difficulty breathing.

He was treated by AMR at the scene but refused transport to the hospital. Officers spoke to witness, who confirmed the account given by the victim. Arrestee was taken into custody and transported to the detention facility without incident. The rope was collected and placed into property by KCSO. Victim was given a domestic violence blue card and advised of his rights.

˚• At 1:37 p.m., Monday, July 20, a KCSO unit was dispatched to a Parkside Drive address regarding a victim receiving threats by phone. Upon arrival, officer made contact with victim, who stated an unknown person has been calling her intermittently for several years, always asking for a “Gary.” The victim said the suspect has called from numerous numbers and that she just blocks each one. At one point, in 2018, the victim was able to determine one of the numbers was from Peninsula Hospital, and she was able to speak with an employee who stated she was unable to give any identifying information. Victim said she decided to report the most recent occurrence because the suspect threatened to slit her throat and “find and beat” her.

Victim said she is in fear the suspect will follow through with her threats. During our interview, the suspect called the victim but would not respond when officer spoke with her. On calling the number back, it went straight to an answering service for “The Gateway Inn of Knoxville.” Victim was given the report number and advised that a detective would be following up with her.
