34 year old Mokbel Massoud was accused of attacking a woman outside of Haynes Manor Apartments as she was walking her dog in Murfreesboro. The incident occurred in July of 2017. Just last week Massoud was convicted and later sentenced for sexual battery in a Rutherford County Court Room.
The 18 year old victim told police the man introduced himself as "Mike" and asked if he could hold her dog, which she allowed. The man then gave the dog back and the victim said when he handed her the dog, he grabbed her breast.
The victim told police that after the incident occurred, she became scared and hurried back to her apartment.
Murfreesboro Police Detective Tommy Roberts investigated the case and later presented findings to the Rutherford County Grand Jury. Charges were handed down which led to the arrest of Mokbel Massoud.
The Murfreesboro man plead guilty to Sexual Battery, which is a Class E felony. He will now have to register as a sex offender, have a psychosexual evaluation and spend two years under supervised probation. In order for Massoud to remain out of prison and stay on probation, he will have to follow a number of rules issued by the courts. Some of those rules include submitting to drug tests, staying away from the 18 year old victim and her family.
