Police say 37-year-old Joseph Siddiqi grabbed his wife by her neck with one hand and placed the other hand on her mouth, pushing on each hand and squeezing her neck until she bit herself, upset that her hijab was not fully covering her neck as she was praying on Valentine’s Day. Officers responded to their Green Timbers Drive residence in Antioch, where the victim explained her husband was walking behind her as she was praying and became upset that a portion of her neck was visible. She replied, “why didn’t you just help me instead of commenting on it?” which is when he assaulted her. Joseph was charged with domestic assault.
Joseph Siddiqi of Green Timber Drive in Antioch, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 15, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. He is free on a $2,000 cash bond.
