Juliana Leos says her husband, 36-year-old Juan Moreno, punched her in the face and then held her down to a bed while choking her with one hand. She says he exclaimed, “You are going to know what it’s like to get beat”. Police documented blood coming from the victim’s nose as well as marks from being choked. When questioned, Moreno claims his wife just “suddenly sat up and hit his face into his shoulder”, leading to all of her injuries. Moreno was charged with aggravated assault/strangulation.
Juan Morena was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 17th. He is free on a $15,000 bond to his 94 Tusculum Road address in Nashville.
