From the courts:
Detective Craig Snyder of the Murfreesboro Police Department testified... "That on or about the 28th day of December, 2005, he responded to the Target parking lot in reference to sexual battery of a female victim. The investigation revealed that the female victim was entering her vehicle at the Target parking lot when a male subject, later identified as Chad Parker, pushed her from behind into her vehicle, began pulling up her skirt, attempted to remove her underwear. The victim began sounding her horn on the vehicle at which time several witnesses approached the vehicle, tried to assist her, did follow Mr. Parker, did call 9-1-1 and give the police directions on how to get there and did keep him in view until the police did come. The police then apprehended him near the Lowe's. . . ."
