Suspect arrested, charged after stabbing on recreation trail

Casey Majors
Age: 42
Franklin, TN

Franklin Police Officers were called to a stabbing on a recreation trail near Ploughman’s Bend Drive, in the Chestnut Bend neighborhood, shortly after 6 pm, Tuesday night. In the end, a woman was punched in the face, a man was stabbed, and the suspect quickly arrested.

Detectives determined that two men and three women were walking on the trail with two young children and a puppy when the suspect, Casey Majors, became confrontational while approaching on his bicycle.

The situation escalated, and Majors punched a 23-year-old woman in the face. Others quickly came to her aid and pulled Majors off of her. Then, Majors pulled a knife and attacked a 38-year-old man who intervened, stabbing him in the bicep. Arriving officers took extraordinary measures to control the victim’s bleeding until paramedics arrived. The victim was rushed to an area trauma center where he was treated and later released. Both victims live nearby and had no connection to Majors.

Officers located Majors in the area and arrested him. Charged with Assault and Aggravated Assault, Majors is out of jail after posting the $30,000 bond set by the Magistrate. He is due in court on May 7.

Beware of COVID-conners

 

Because criminals work to capitalize on crisis, and with considerable public concern over the Coronavirus, Franklin Police want to remind residents to be on guard against scammers.

Most scams try to entice victims with a special offer while presenting a sense of urgency. Scammers will prey on current concerns about the virus to steal personal information and money from their victims.

On the phone:
Hang up on robocalls. Do not press any numbers, answer questions, or provide personal information or credit card numbers, or make any form of payment to someone with whom you have not previously done business.

Online:
Do not click on links sent to you by email or text that are from new or unknown/unverified senders. Criminals may create fraudulent emails that appear to be from organizations like the CDC or World Health Organization, with clickable links, in an attempt to steal personal or financial information from your phone, tablet, or computer.

Retail:
There are currently no FDA-approved home test kit available for COVID-19. Ignore online or in-person offers for vaccinations, pills, potions, lotions, etc., that claim to treat or cure Coronavirus.

Door to door:
Door to door solicitation in Franklin is strictly regulated by City Ordinance. Report suspected violations to Franklin Police by calling (615) 794-2513.

Donation scams:
Be leery of donating to anyone you do not know or who makes you feel rushed – especially if they are soliciting cash, gift cards, or asking you to wire money. Instead of making a solicited donation, consider making an unsolicited donation locally, or by seeking out a reputable, verified website for a known relief organization. For more help on this, visit www.sos.tn.gov/charitable.

Government scams:
The government will not ask you to pay anything up-front to get relief or other government checks. There are no charges or fees, ever. The government will not call and ask for your Social Security number, bank account number, or credit card number. Anyone who calls requesting you to provide or verify these numbers is attempting to defraud you. Hang up.

  • Franklin residents who have provided personal information or payment to a scammer should file a report by calling Franklin Police at (615) 794-2513.

  • If you see scams, fraud, price gouging, or other attempts to take advantage of Tennesseans during this public health emergency, contact the Tennessee Division of Consumer Affairs to file a consumer complaint.

  • Report suspicious claims (impostors, phone/text, internet, robocalls, etc.) to the (Federal Trade Commission).

During this unprecedented time, #YourFranklinPolice are here for you: serving your family, protecting your neighborhood, facing this crisis with you. Together, but 6′ apart.
