A Nashville man has been found guilty of kidnapping, rape, and robbery.

In a case described by the assistant district attorney as horrific, 31-year-old Peterpal Tutlam was found guilty by a Davidson County jury

Tutlam was convicted Friday in an attack on two men outside a south Nashville apartment in 2012.

According to reports, the victims were beaten, stabbed repeatedly, robbed, and forced to perform sexual acts on each other by Tutlam and three other armed men.

“It took so much strength and courage for the victims to face the man who did this to them and to testify about the horrendous things they were put through,” Assistant District Attorney Megan King said.

“This was a random, callous act against innocent victims who were on their way to work when they were subjected to a violent and horrific attack by a group of men who should not be on the streets of Nashville,” Assistant DA Doug Thurman said.

Tutlam has been scheduled to be sentenced February 24. He’s facing 15 to 25 years on each of the six counts against him.

Officials said Tutlam’s three co-defendants previously pled guilty.
