HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A man was arrested after police said he sexually assaulted someone in Hendersonville.

Some residents said they’re scared after Hendersonville police say Nathan Parks sexually assaulted someone on Saturday. Parks was charged with aggravated rape, aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated burglary.

Police said this happened at the Wessington Apartments.

A man who lives there said he was not surprised about the sexual assault. He said the apartment complex is filled with crime and drugs. He also said he doesn’t feel safe there but has nowhere else to go.

We took those allegations to the leasing office at the apartment complex. They gave us the email to the apartment managers. WSMV4 reached out to the apartment managers asking about the safety of their residents and also about the allegations that the complex is filled with drugs.

“We are shocked and saddened by the events that unfolded this weekend at the Wessington House. We are working diligently with law enforcement to ensure all proper steps are taken to support their investigation. At this time, we know the suspect has been arrested. We cannot give additional details due to the ongoing investigation. Wessington House residents have been informed and should contact the City of Hendersonville Police Department if they have any information that could help the case,” the apartment complex said in a statement.

The apartment managers did not directly address the allegations the man made.

Hendersonville police are still seeking information. If you know something they’re asking you give them a call at 615-264-5303.
