This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
34-year-old Kwaku Akuffo Owoo is charged with assault after he became upset that the wifi at his apartment complex wasn’t working as he expected and confronted the apartment office staff about the issue. He began to yell at Davis Farish before taking the coffee mug from the victim’s hand and hitting him on the head with it. The victim pushed the mug away and it fell to the floor and shattered. Owoo then picked up a piece of the shattered mug and pointed it at the victim’s throat while attempting to tackle him. Police arrived and interviewed Owoo, who stated “You can speak to my lawyer on Monday.”
At the time of this arrest, it was also discovered Owoo had an outstanding warrant from 2021 charging him with harassment of his ex-girlfriend, Erica Cason. The warrant alleges Owoo gifted her money for Christmas, and two days later demanded that he wanted his money back. When she refused to return the gift, he sent text messages to her stating “you will get mad and die in 2022” and became specific that she would die in her vehicle.
Kwaku Akuffo Owoo, of City Place in Nashville, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 11th, charged with assault and harassment. He is free on a $6,000 bond.
