NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A woman fought back against the man who broke into her South Nashville apartment over the weekend and robbed her of her belongings, a police report states.
Metro police responded Sunday to Brookridge Trail where a woman reported she returned home to find a stranger in her apartment.
The intruder grabbed the woman’s purse which contained her ID, debit and credit cards, social security card and iPhone.

Once in custody, Ogastino Eimo was identified by the victim as the intruder, police said.
