2nd Person Attacked In Their Home

For the second time in less than a week, a Coffee County resident has been attacked at their residence. Timothy Richard Howard of Silver Street reported to Tullahoma Police Officer Chase Sons that 3 black males attacked him Tuesday morning around 12:30 a.m. when he went to get something out of his vehicle. Howard told the officer that the men hit him multiple times, and that one picked up a beer bottle and began to beat him in the head. The attackers took Howard’s wallet with $200 cash and bankcards. Manchester Police are continuing to investigate an attack on a woman on Summer Street in Manchester Friday night. 32-year-old Amanda Townsend told officers that the attackers entered her residence and beat her until she lost consciousness. She said that when she regained consciousness, she was in a closet with her hands and feet tied behind her. Townsend was taken to a local hospital and released over the weekend. Manchester investigator Butch Stewart says the attacks are similar to some in Nashville, and that information has been shared with Nashville.
