Metro Nashville Police responded to an East Nashville home at 4 a.m. Friday after Musician Ryan Wright reported she was taking a shower when a woman (later identified as her friend and fellow musician, 26-year-old Cassidy Ford), was suddenly banging on the bathroom door. Ford was holding an orange knife upside-down in a stabbing position and started swinging it downward attempting to stab Wright. The victim received a two-inch laceration to her tricep before pushing Ford away from her and shutting the door. Ford fled to a neighbor’s house and called 911, stating there was a woman breaking into her home. When police arrived at the home, Cassidy Ford attempted to prevent officers from entering, stating “I had a bad night, no one else is here besides my friend”. Officers entered the residence and found Wright, injured and still sheltering in the bathroom, in a full state of panic. The knife was located in the kitchen. Cassidy Ford was charged with the felony aggravated assault of her friend and was jailed on a $15,000 bond.
Cassidy Nicole Ford was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail, charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She posted a $15,000 cash bond and was released to her 1514 Lillian Street address in Nashville, TN.
