Police were called Wednesday to the 1300 block of Wenlon Drive after a man reported an unidentified suspect robbed him at gunpoint while he was walking home.
The 22-year-old man told officers the suspect approached him at about 5 p.m., pointed a handgun in his face, and demanded all of his money, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
Upon handing over his wallet that contained $200 in cash, the man was ordered to go inside his residence and shut the door, so that he would be unable to tell officers where the suspect went after the incident.
The suspect then fled the area without harming the man.
Officers arrived a few minutes later but were unable to locate the suspect, described as a 6-foot-tall black male with short hair, wearing a white shirt and dark-colored pants.
Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers at 615-893-7867. All callers will remain anonymous.
Homeless man assaulted outside motel
A 29-year-old homeless man suffered serious injuries Tuesday when an unknown assailant allegedly assaulted him in the parking lot of Murfreesboro Motel on Northwest Broad Street.
Officers and first responders were called to the motel just before 6 a.m. after the injured man ran to a nearby hotel room for help, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
When they arrived at the scene, police found the man covered in blood due to a serious head injury. Although he was conscious, the man was unable to recollect anything about the attack, including the identity of a possible suspect and type of object that was used to strike him.
He was then transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital, while Murfreesboro detectives processed the scene and collected evidence.
Since then, authorities have not released any more details as to whether they believe the man was randomly attacked, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Grounds at apartment complex vandalized
Employees discovered Monday that more than $400 worth of property at College Grove Apartments, located in the 1500 block of Lascassas Pike, had been damaged by an unknown number of suspects.
A manager told officers the incident likely occurred before the leasing office opened for business that day, though none of the employees were sure as to the exact timeframe, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
The suspects allegedly threw numerous items in the community pool and slashed two tires on a golf cart, as well as a volleyball net.
Officers were unable to find any witnesses who saw the incident, and the manager did not know who would have damaged the property.
As of Friday, no one had been arrested or charged in connection with the vandalism, and the matter remains under investigation.
