Murfreesboro Police responded to a woman who was reportedly the victim of prostitution and aggravated assault at the Sudden Service gas station on Old Fort Parkway on Sunday at approximately 8:15 a.m.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with the victim. The victim was not wearing shoes and ran into the gas station to ask for help. The victim also asked the clerk to call 9-11 and puked on the floor at the time of her entrance. The victim was then escorted into the gas station office. The victim told officers that she was beaten by a man that she only knew as “Prince.”

The victim also said that the man was selling her body. She had visible marks from the assault on her neck and shoulders, as well as cuts on her left arm.

The victim was transported to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital for medical attention. Detectives were then notified and took over the investigation.
