Landings area residents asked to check home cameras after resident attacked

Post Date:10/24/2019 4:00 PM

Earlier today, Franklin Police used Nextdoor to warn residents within a two-mile radius of The Landings about the disturbing attack of a woman early this morning. It happened on McKay’s Court.

At about 4:30 am, a resident took her dog out when an attacker wearing a hoodie struck her several times in the face and then fled after the victim’s dog fought back. The attacker is described as a tall white male with a solid build, scruffy face, and wavy hair.

The Department is stepping up patrols in both marked and unmarked cars and asks residents to remain vigilant, especially during late night / early morning hours.

Residents with a Ring Doorbell or other exterior camera are urged to check it for overnight activations in hopes that someone may have captured an image of the attacker.

Anyone with information should call
Franklin Police: (615) 794-2513
