29-year-old Wontez Graham brutally assaulted his former lover, Abagail Collier, in the parking garage on 1200 Broadway just before 4 a.m. Monday, causing her to be hospitalized with serious injuries. Although their relationship had ended, the two still maintain a few properties they use as short-term rentals. She arrived at this one to stay the night, believing it was empty and Wontez was out of town. She says as she entered the unit, he immediately pulled her inside and punched her in the face. As she escaped to the elevator, he followed her to the parking garage, where security footage showed him strangling her approximately five times and shoving her to the ground. He then brutally kicks her in the body and face multiple times.
Wontez Graham shot and killed a man in 2020 in another downtown apartment parking garage in what was determined to be self-defense.
Wontez Deonte Graham of Broadway in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 13, charged with aggravated assault – strangulation. He is free on a $15,000 bond.
