Police officials said they arrested a man last week after he was alleged to have attacked a Clarksville man and then kidnapped the man's wife. He's accused of sexual assault on the woman as well.
The suspect is from Hendersonville, Tennessee, officials said.
Police investigators claim that at about 8:30 in the evening last Tuesday, a bloodied, crying woman walked up to a hotel clerk and asked the clerk to call police.
The 25-year-old reportedly told the clerk that "the guy I am with killed the father of my children and I have to get a room or he will kill everyone here."
After police arrived, they went to the hotel room where the woman had gone and knocked on the door. They say the Tennessee man answered the knock with bloodied hands. A firearm was on the dresser.
The partially clothed woman was apparently crying; an ambulance later took her to a hospital.
Police later went to a Needmore Road residence, where they found the woman's husband with a head wound.
Detectives say that the Tennessee man visited the married couple, got into a fight with the husband and then ran him over with a vehicle. He then allegedly threatened to kill the couple's children if the woman didn't get in the vehicle with him.
The 37-year-old man then took her to the hotel, where he reportedly raped her.
He was charged by Clarksville police with aggravated assault, kidnapping and sexual assault. Bail was set at $125,000 and he was booked into Montgomery County Jail.
