33-year-old Demayo Partee had an altercation with Tobia Burdette Jr. on Broadway at The Stillery Midtown late March 16th. When officers arrived, they located Burdette, who had lost consciousness after being strangled by an unidentified male. Burdett was out with Partee and his girlfriend when they started to argue, so he tried to intervene. When Burdette attempted to step in between them, Partee grabbed him by the neck and strangled him until he was unconscious, collapsing to the ground. Burdette was then transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center. Detectives could not locate Partee, but they reviewed security footage of the scuffle and then spoke with witnesses, who helped identify Partee. Partee was taken into custody for aggravated assault on March 18th.
