On Friday September 4, 2020 at 3:10 AM, Walker County deputies responded to an assault in Rossville, Georgia. Upon arrival, deputies found a white female inside her residence, wrapped only in a blanket and bleeding from the mouth.
The female reported that she was picked up by a taxi in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and brought to her residence. She stated that the driver, an older black male with a gray beard, came into her apartment and, once inside, physically and sexually assaulted her.
Surveillance footage was recovered and photos of the male suspect were obtained, as well as photographs of his white four door passenger car with taxi markings. Through investigation, the suspect was identified as NAKAI LAMONT MCMILLAN, a resident of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Warrants were obtained charging MCMILLAN with rape and aggravated battery. MCMILLAN was arrested in Hamilton County and is currently being held there, pending extradition to the Walker County Detention facility.
During the investigation, it was discovered that MCMILLAN has been investigated in the past for similar incidents and there have been allegations by other victims reporting physical and sexual assault after being picked up by a taxi.
The modus operandi (MO) for this suspect is to pick up intoxicated females late at night in areas of night clubs and bars, by offering them taxi service. Once in the taxi, MCMILLAN initiates conversation and offers to use drugs with them at their residence. Once inside the victim(s) residence, MCMILLAN then sexually and physically assaults the victim.
