Beating Arrest In Tullahoma

A Tullahoma man has been charged in connection with the beating of a Silver Street resident last week.
Patrick Perkins, 20, of Eastgate Apartments in Tullahoma, was served a warrant for aggravated robbery Friday while in custody in the Franklin County Jail in Winchester. He is being jailed on charges of assault and failure to appear in court. Perkins is accused of beating Timothy Richard Howard, 40, early last Tuesday morning outside of Briarwood Apartments. According to a police report, Howard was beaten by three men as he went to remove an item from his vehicle. He told police that he was beaten and one man picked up a beer bottle and beat him in the head. Howard told the officer that the three assailants took his wallet, credit cards, and $200 in cash.
According to a warrant obtained by Tullahoma Police Investigator Jason Kennedy, Perkins was one of the three men who assaulted Howard. Kennedy is continuing to search for other individuals involved in the incident.
