Rock Throwing Crime Now Reported In Downtown Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It was a morning commute that turned into a nightmare for one driver.

"I'm really lucky that I didn't get any glass in my face," said MJ Trevens.

MJ Trevens has called Nashville home for the last two years and has enjoyed living in Music City, but Wednesday, just after 8 a.m., she experienced something bizarre traveling on James Robertson Parkway.

"While I had turned to get onto James Robertson Pkwy, I noticed there was a woman who was in sweat pants and lassoing a plastic bag over her head," said Trevens.

Little did Trevens know, she was the target.

"I didn't think much of it, but then I realized she was watching me as I was driving closer to her and she just flung that bag at my windshield," said Trevens.

The incident happened right in the area of Interstate Drive and James Robertson Parkway. Sadly, this wasn't the first time this has happened. In fact, this was at least the tenth incident.

"I didn't realize that this was something that had been happening outside of Nashville. Now that it's creeping into the city, there's a lot of families in my neighborhood," said Trevens.

Those are families Trevens has been concerned for, and she has hoped an arrest comes sometime soon.



"I hope spreading awareness will keep people safe, and we can find these people who I don't know why are doing this," said Trevens.

Trevens called police, but no arrests have been made in any of these incidents. There's a $6,000 reward for these rock throwing incidents.

Anyone with information has been urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME (615-742-7463).
