COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. — A Somerville man accused of attacking a woman in Collierville last month has been arrested.

Cadarius Luellen approached a woman walking down Market Boulevard near Green Oaks and tried to rape her, police said.

She screamed and escaped. Her husband called 911.

Authorities said the 28-year-old Luellen was taken into custody on Monday thanks to the help of the public.

He’s been charged with aggravated kidnapping and attempted rape.
