Ryean L. Floyd (Metro Nashville Police Dept.)

A 24-year-old man in Tennessee is facing multiple felony charges for allegedly kidnapping and raping a mother who was feeding her baby in a public park last week. Ryean L. Floyd was taken into custody on Friday and charged with one count each of aggravated rape causing bodily injury and aggravated kidnapping, court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Floyd and the female victim — whose name has not been released by authorities — knew each other prior to the alleged attack, but had not spoken in more than a year, Nashville NBC affiliate WKRN-TV reported.

According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by the station, the victim and Floyd agreed to meet on Thursday, May 25 at Shelby Bottoms Nature Center, a public park located in Nashville. The victim and her 1-year-old child reportedly met up with Floyd as agreed, and the three of them spent some time together in the park.

After spending “a while” in the park with Floyd, the victim decided that it was getting late and the time had come to take her child home, police reportedly wrote in the affidavit. She reportedly walked back to her car, which was in the Shelby Bottoms parking lot, and placed her child in the backseat.

The victim reportedly decided to feed her child before leaving and also got into the backseat of her vehicle. That is when Floyd allegedly attacked.
