24-year-old Lilia Francois was charged with aggravated domestic assault after neighbors heard a person screaming for someone to call 911, and her boyfriend reported being strangled because he would not sleep with her.
On October 28th, Clarksville Police Department Officer Tyler Eller arrived at Cedar Apartments, located at 75 West Fork Drive, in response to a 911 call from a neighbor who overheard yelling. Lilia Francois and her boyfriend, Jonathan Mesa, were out of breath when Eller saw them.
Mesa advised that Francois came home after a night of drinking and demanded sex from him. Mesa stated that he wanted to go outside to smoke and Francois pushed him on the bed. According to Mesa she started punching him and strangled him. Francois then placed a pillow over his head and pushed down on it, according to the report. Mesa says he “punched her in the ribs and pushed her off of him by her neck.” Mesa had signs of injury on his face and neck.
Lilia Francois was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic assault. She was released on a $1,000 bond.
