CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Police have arrested a man who police believe assaulted and robbed multiple women who work as prostitutes over a weeklong period.
Clarksville police arrested 30-year-old Kevin George Jones and charged him with two counts of robbery and one count of simple possession.
Police believe Jones was approaching prostitutes and agreeing to exchange sex for money. After the sex act was completed, police believe he assaulted and then robbed the women of all their money.
Jones was identified through the vehicle description given to police by the victims. An officer stopped the car for a traffic violation and found marijuana inside the vehicle. A detective was called out to the scene since the vehicle and description of the suspect matched Jones.
Jones was linked to two of the cases but police are working to link him to the other cases as well. One robbery happened on 3 a.m. on September 14. Police said one victim told them the suspect got angry at her and began to hit her in the face and then forcibly took her money, including the money he paid her.
The second victim told police a similar story. She said he robbed her between September 1 and September 11. She said Jones drug her out of the vehicle and beat her until two unknown males appeared.
Police are still investigating and additional charges are expected in at least one other similar case. Jones was held on $226,000 bond.
