Police: Man Groped Woman While She Was Sleeping

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was arrested after police said he groped a woman while she was sleeping inside her north Nashville home over the weekend.

Police said the woman's family members helped subdue 23-year-old Troy Jones until they arrived early Sunday morning.

The woman told police she woke up and saw a man standing over her bed. She got out of bed, and ran to wake her sister up.

All the noise woke everyone in the house up, including the victim's brother. They all managed to hold the man, who had run into the bathroom and hid behind a door, until police arrived.

Jones was charged with sexual battery and aggravated burglary, because police said he stole the victim's cell phone and alarm clock. His bond was set at $75,000.
