Elijah Maitland breaks into ex-girlfriend’s apartment & refuses to leave during altercation

23-year-old Elijah Maitland was involved in a domestic altercation with his ex-girlfriend, Raquel Acevedo, at her Blair Boulevard apartment on May 23rd. When officers arrived, they spoke with Acevedo, who stated that Maitland wasn’t in her apartment. Acevedo informed officers that she and Maitland had stayed in her apartment together but that he hadn’t lived there since August 2023. Acevedo told officers she came home to find Maitland inside her apartment when she got off last night on May 22nd. Acevedo stated that since she knew that her door was locked before she left, Maitland had to enter through the window. Her apartment was on the second floor of the building. However, there is an awning with windows above it, which Acevedo stated she couldn’t lock. Acevedo told officers that when she came into contact with Maitland, she asked him to leave several times, but he refused. According to Acevedo, Maitland took her phone from her hand to prevent her from calling 911. She added that they “hand fought” over her phone, but she couldn’t regain possession. After eventually getting her phone back, Acevedo decided to leave and stay with a friend instead of continuing to fight Maitland.

Acevedo told law enforcement that Maitland was still inside her apartment when she returned on May 23rd. Acevedo stated that after trying to get Maitland to leave, he took her phone again to prevent her from calling the police. Maitland then continued to berate her verbally. In fear for her safety, Acevedo grabbed a kitchen knife to defend herself. She expressed that she never intended to threaten Maitland with the knife and that she only got the knife because he appeared violent. Maitland continuously attempted to “snatch” the knife away from her hand and, at one point, was able to grab onto the blade. Acevedo was able to get the knife free from Maitland’s hand by “slicing” his hand. Maitland was completely unfazed and continued to “hand fight” with her. Acevedo decided to leave the apartment and get assistance from someone outside her apartment. As Acevedo attempted to leave, Maitland grabbed her by the shirt and pulled her back into the room, causing another “scuffle” over her phone. Acevedo stated that she eventually assured Maitland that she wouldn’t call 911 and got her phone back from him. Once Acevedo got her phone, she immediately called 911 but hung up because she was scared he might lash out at her again. Acevedo called 911 again a short time later. Maitland became aware of this and left the location without another altercation. Maitland was not present when the officers arrived.

Later, on July 1st, officers met with Raquel Acevedo about a call for service regarding a domestic dispute at her Blair Boulevard residence. Officers determined that no criminal offense had occurred. However, officers discovered Maitland, the other involved party, had five outstanding warrants in Davidson County. Officers confirmed those warrants to still be active and began searching the area for him. Officers then located Maitland walking down an alley between 17th Ave S and 18th Ave S. When Maitland saw police, he ran into a tree line towards Belmont University’s campus. Officers lost Maitland but later found him again on Belmont University’s Campus. Officers identified themselves as police and gave Maitland the command to “stop.” Upon seeing the police, Maitland again fled from the officers. Officers warned Maitland he’d be tased if he continued running from them. Eventually, officers caught up to Maitland and took him into custody without further incident. Maitland was taken into custody and charged with two counts of interfering with an emergency call, false imprisonment, domestic assault, and aggravated burglary on July 1st.

Malachi Nelson steals $45,000 worth of property after breaking into woman’s home

32-year-old Malachi Nelson was seen trespassing with marijuana on him at The Greyhound Bus Station near Rep John Lewis Way South on June 20th. When officers arrived on the scene, it was for an unrelated call. Staff flagged down officers and told them they wanted Nelson to be banned from returning to the property. Officers then spoke with Nelson and told him he would be arrested for trespassing if he returned. Officers then left the scene and received a call from the same location shortly after. The caller stated that Nelson had climbed the fence into the property and threatened to kill everybody inside the bus station. When officers arrived on the scene, Nelson was still on the property, and since officers had previously warned him, he was taken into custody for trespassing.

During a search of Nelson, officers located a small amount of marijuana inside of a small plastic bag. Officers also located several other suspicious items, including a photo ID and a debit card that belonged to a female and not Nelson. When asked about the items, he stated that he did not know where they came from or how long he had had them. Officers then discovered that the owner of the ID card had made a call and was waiting for officers to make a report about a burglary that had occurred. The suspect’s description of the burglary matched Nelson’s, and specific details about his clothing were included in the description. The victim of the burglary also had doorbell camera footage, which officers viewed, showing Nelson entering and exiting through the unlocked front door. He was seen carrying a stolen laptop and several bags containing two PlayStation 5 consoles, a MacBook laptop, multiple sets of car keys, house keys, an ID card, a debit card, $1,100 cash, an Audemars Piguet watch, designer clothing, and a Chromebook laptop. The value of the stolen property is valued to be more than $45,000, and Nelson was taken into custody for aggravated burglary, criminal trespass, and possession of a controlled substance. Nelson was recently arrested before this incident on June 18th for breaking into a US Bank ATM with a large rock.

Then, Jackson said Anderson told her he had $20,000 inside a pouch in his Mercedes, but when she searched for it, she could not find it, adding that his car appeared to have been rummaged through.

Officers then spoke with Johnson over the phone about the incident. Johnson told them that when he arrived at the apartment, everything seemed in place, but after returning on January 28th, around 4:20 p.m., he saw drawers and doors that were not opened when he left. He also stated he did not believe Sheng had a key to the unit. Jackson informed police that Anderson had the locks changed and cameras installed following the occurrence. Jackson added that she told Johnson to stay out of Anderson’s apartment, which he agreed with. A day later, Jackson caught Johnson under surveillance going through her brother’s items and provided officers with the footage. Jackson advised officers she wanted Johnson to return Anderson’s motorcycle jacket and 43X pistol. On April 24th, the police called Johnson about the missing property, and he told them he had returned the things he had stolen and that he did not know about the jacket or pistol. Jackson also stated that the neighbor told her that Sheng was at the apartment on the day the things were stolen. Jackson said she sent a certified letter through her attorney to Sheng asking for the items back. Sheng returned some of the missing things, including one pistol and four holsters. During a phone call, Sheng told officers she had returned all the stolen items from Anderson to Jackson. A warrant was issued for Johnson’s arrest, and he was later detained.

Officers discovered that the Chevy Cruz was registered to Underwood’s relative, Ardy Boyle, who stated Underwood primarily drove the vehicle. During a call with Dotson, he said he was at the Airbnb for what he thought was a housewarming party with Underwood and gave officers his phone number.

Dotson stated this is when they started loading the items into their cars. Dotson said he knew “something was off” when Underwood got upset with him for dropping one of the TVs.

Before they left, she said he had his friend grab his phone from a red Toyota Tundra.

Once at the apartment complex, he asked for a beer, so she went to get it for him because she did not want him to enter her unit, but Cabrera came in anyway, picked her up, put her on the countertop while groping her breasts and removing her bra. After she told him she did not want to do that, he threw her onto her bed, removed her pants, and penetrated her vagina with his fingers until she ripped off his necklace and strangled him with a charging cable until he stopped.

When he left, she locked the door behind him. While she prepared for a shower, Cabrera re-entered her apartment looking for his necklace, which was when she told him to leave. She grabbed her phone and started to call the police, so he fled and took her car keys and purse.
