41-year-old Hopkinsville Musician Tulei Yano assaulted multiple women at Big Jimmy’s Bar in the early hours of February 24th. Security for the establishment flagged officers down and advised them that the attacker, Yano, was inside the closed construction site on 2nd Avenue North. Officers arrived at the site and noticed Yano exhibiting symptoms of intoxication before getting him to exit the construction site. Yano was unaware of his whereabouts and was deemed unable to care for himself. Officers then spoke with Brandi Renea Stimson, an employee at Big Jimmy’s Bar who Yano assaulted. Stimson advised them that she was checking identification at the entry door when Yano grabbed her shoulders from behind and pulled her toward him. Then, after Stimson told him not to do that, Yano entered the bar and assaulted another woman before being kicked out. A short time later, Yano started staring at Stimson from the construction site on 2nd Avenue North. Yano began violently shaking the fence with his hands, causing her to believe that he was targeting her and may climb over the fence to get her. Yano was taken into custody for public intoxication, criminal trespassing, and assault.
