Police are trying to figure out why an unknown number of suspects would vandalize the home of a 70-year-old Murfreesboro woman who lives on Centertree Drive in the Blackman community.

The woman awoke Thursday to the sounds of glass shattering just after 2:30 a.m. and discovered that rocks had been thrown through four windows of her house, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.

When officers responded to the residence, located in the 2200 block of Centertree Drive off Cason Trail, they observed a window overlooking the backyard and three windows on the front of the house had been broken.

In total, more than $500 worth of property was damaged during the incident.

Officers were unable to locate anyone who witnessed the vandalism, and the woman reportedly had no idea who would have targeted her house.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers at 615-893-7867.

College student sexually assaulted at party

A 22-year-old woman is alleging that a male acquaintance assaulted her while the two were having consensual sex during a party they both attended in late March at a west Murfreesboro residence.

Detectives took over the case Tuesday after the woman agreed to speak with police while receiving medical treatment for health issues related to the incident.

During an interview, the Middle Tennessee State University senior reported that the incident involved a fellow student and occurred March 25 just after 2 a.m. at a home in the 1500 block of Rochester Drive, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.

The woman told officers the man was being too rough, so she told him to stop. Although he initially complied with her requests, the 21-year-old man grew increasingly agitated and aggressive.

A few minutes later, he allegedly assaulted the woman, at one point biting her on the chest. When the woman tried to fight back, he allegedly sodomized her with his finger.

Even though she did not immediately go to police, the woman did save the clothes that she was wearing on the night of the attack. Detectives have since collected those items, as well as photographs of the injuries she received during the incident, for further analysis.

As of Friday, the man accused of the sexual assault had not been arrested or charged in connection with the case, and the investigation continues into the allegations.

Valuable tools stolen from house

A man discovered Monday evening that nearly $700 worth of tools had been stolen from outside of his home in the 2400 block of Mission Ridge Drive in north Murfreesboro.

The unknown number of suspects allegedly stole the tools, which were in the driveway next to the garage, some time between the hours of 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. while the man was not at home, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.

Among the items listed as stolen include a $399 DeWalt compound saw and 12-inch Craftsman table saw, which is estimated to be worth $300.

The man could not provide police with any information about a possible suspect, and the incident remains under investigation.
