NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man who was wanted by police for an assault last month is now in custody, the Metro Nashville Police Department said.

Officers arrested that suspect, Reginald Thomas, Friday afternoon.

The suspect was identified as Thomas thanks to a tip that was made to Nashville Crime Stoppers.

Thomas, arrested on aggravated assault charges, is being held on a $25,000 bond.
