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.
