A Tullahoma man was arrested Monday, Oct. 26, and charged with domestic simple assault following an incident at an apartment on Freeman Street.
A female reported to Tullahoma Police Officer Mickey Blanton early Monday morning that she was assaulted at the Freeman Street apartment by Tye Valentin, 23. She said that she was asleep with her daughter when Valentin became belligerent and struck her on the arm and the back of her head. The woman told the officer that Valentin then pinned her against a back door of the apartment. The victim told the officer that Valentin then grabbed the three month pregnant woman by her hair and started kicking her in the side.
She was then able to get away from her alleged attacker and was walking down East Lincoln Street when officers found her. They then took her back to the apartment so officers could get both sides of the story.
According to Officer Mickey Blanton’s report, the woman had bruises on her left arm and the right side of her body.
Valentin was booked into the Coffee County Jail under a bond of $25,000.
