An 18-year-old nanny, who police said was assaulted at a Nashville park in August, testified in court sitting just feet away from the man who allegedly raped her.

The young woman maintained her composure for nearly 17 minutes as she was forced to recall the graphic details about how Dennis Ramos-Montes allegedly attacked her on a trail at Hamilton Creek Park.

"He covered my mouth and threw me to the ground, knocked my teeth out. He raped me vaginally and orally," the young woman told the court.

The judge in the case decided there was probable cause to send it to a grand jury, then shared some words with the victim.

"I’m sorry. You are an incredibly brave person," Judge Bill Higgins said. 

Ramos-Montes was held on a $210,000 bond.
