Trespasser arrested after brutal attack on construction site manager

Gerard P. Kalbfell
Age: 43
Franklin, Tennessee

An aggravated assault suspect is free on bond after attacking a construction manager who caught him trespassing.

A police investigation led to yesterday’s arrest of 43-year-old Gerard Kalbfell, of Franklin, following the May 26 attack at a Tower Circle construction site. The victim, a site manager, challenged Kalbfell who was trespassing in the construction site at approximately 8:00 pm. During the encounter, Kalbfell choked and repeatedly punched the victim. Kalbfell then went into his own trunk where he retrieved a bottle he used to repeatedly strike the victim in the head and mouth. The victim was eventually able to run to a passing car for help. Kalbfell fled, but was arrested yesterday after an investigation led to his identification as the suspect.

Kalbfell, charged with the felony offense of Aggravated Assault, is free on the $25,000 bond set by the Magistrate. He is due in court on June 8 at 1:00 pm. The victim was transported to the Williamson Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
