Metro Nashville 911 operators received a call on August 12th and heard a female, later identified as Maggie Rhodes, attempting to give an address in Antioch before a struggle ensued and she screamed “quit hitting me” as the line disconnected. Officers responded to the Antioch home, and she stated she had been arguing with her husband, 44-year-old Komlanvi Houssounoukpe, throughout the day, and he had punched her in the face several times. She explained he took her phone when she called 911, and he still had the phone in his possession when officers spoke to him. Officers documented several abrasions on the victim, including a swollen eye.
Komlanvi Houssounoukpe of Ashwell Close in Antioch, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 13th, charged ith domestic assault with bodily injury and interference with a 911 call. He is free on a $2,500 bond.
