Two men have been arrested for the brutal attack on a young woman who approached a neighbor's house to borrow an ingredient for dinner.

Police said Kerry V. Covington was arrested in Ashland City while Antonio Lamar Nelson was arrested Wednesday night in Nashville.

The attack happened on Dec. 8. The victim had only planned to be at her friend's Ashland City house for a few moments to grab an onion, and she even left her vehicle running outside.

"When she got in the kitchen, somebody hit her," said neighbor Charles Gaye.

She was tied up and held at gunpoint before being dragged into a bedroom.

"They sexually assaulted her with an instrument," said Ashland City Police Chief Marc Coulon.

"Then they got through and threw her in the bathtub, and she was tied up with cables around her arms and legs," Gaye said.

Gaye was the first to respond after the attack when the young woman somehow managed to hobble her way across the street, desperate for help.

"I opened the door, and there she stood. I mean, it was awful," Gaye said.

Police say the suspects took TVs, an XBox, a shotgun, the woman's wallet and her borrowed Jeep, which police found abandoned on Brunswick Street in Nashville the day after the attack. Her cell phone was found tossed out along a highway.
