NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – For the second time in about a week, Metro Nashville police are asking for the public’s help to find a dangerous domestic violence suspect.

Francisco Omar Tomayo, 35, of south Nashville, is wanted for aggravated assault and aggravated burglary after he went to his ex-girlfriend’s home and broke a window on May 7.

Detectives said when she went to see what broke the window, Tomayo was there and threatened her.

“He said if I can’t have you no one will and fired a round through the window and into the house,” MNPD Domestic Violence Lt. Tommy Widener said. “When the victim tries to break away from the victim that is when the victim is the most vulnerable.”

Tomayo is considered a high risk domestic violence suspect because he used a gun and because of other statements he made.

If you have any information about his whereabouts call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.

The domestic violence unit, along with the district attorney’s office, DCS, probation and parole, and domestic violence support services, meet monthly to identify the most dangerous suspects.

On Thursday, Metro police put out an alert for Adarion Morris, 29, who had 20 outstanding warrants for attacks on three women he was dating between March and May 19. He was arrested Friday morning.

Lt. Widener urged victims to seek help and to come to the Domestic Violence Unit located at 811 Second Avenue South if they can.

“If they don’t want to speak to the police directly, they don’t have to,” Lt. Widener explained. “We have counselors here at the domestic violence unit who can talk to them about the issues they are facing in their lives.”

He continued, “We can do a needs assessment, we can do a safety plan, and we can see what’s really transpiring in their lives.”

You can reach the Domestic Violence Division at 615-880-3000.
