We have more news on the convicted sex offender who was arrested in Murfreesboro for his alleged violent sexual attack on a woman. Michael John Mayner evidently has a long criminal history that landed him in trouble with the law several times before, a history that delves into sexual attacks.
Around 12:00 Wednesday afternoon (11/4/15), Murfreesboro Police officers responded to a parking lot in the 400 block of N. Thompson Lane in reference to an attack on a female. Detectives believe that 48-year old Mayner, most recently from North Carolina, violently sexually assaulted a 34 year old female in the parking lot.
Several witnesses stepped in and broke up the attack, according to Sgt. Kyle Evans. The 5 foot 4 inches tall suspect fled the area but was arrested by responding officers in a nearby parking lot. The victim was transported to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital where she was treated and released.
Detective Sergeant Paul Mongold of the Special Victim's Unit charged Mayner with Agg. Kidnapping, Agg. Assault and Agg. Sexual Battery X 2. He was booked at the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office without incident.
