37-year-old Cherree Jenkins was jailed on June 27th after coming after her disabled roommate with a metal bat and stealing his TV. Police spoke with Horace Ewing, who said while he was away, Ms. Jenkins broke into his room and took the door off the hinges. When he returned home, he asked her where his door was, and she told him she had taken it off because he was being evicted. Horace stayed in his room and avoided Ms. Jenkins to prevent the situation from escalating. The next day while Horace was in his room, Ms. Jenkins entered holding a metal bat. She started swinging it around, telling Horace he had two hours to get his stuff and get out, and if he didn’t, she “had something for him.” He was afraid and remained in his room while Ms. Jenkins took all his clothes, bagged them, and threw them outside. Police told her that she couldn’t throw his belongings outside. While police spoke with him, Ms. Jenkins was inside, taking the TV out of his room and putting it in hers. Ms. Jenkins’ aunt is a partial owner of the home and rented a room to Horace. Officers spoke with Davidson County Sherriff’s office, who stated that no active eviction was on file.
