Police arrest ‘violent, dangerous’ sex offender for living near Tennessee school, park

Around the South

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man listed as a “violent and dangerous” sex offender was arrested in North Nashville, Tennessee, and is facing more charges after Metro police say he was living near several childcare facilities in the area, including an elementary school, two daycares, and a park. 

Police arrested Philemon Kabuka, 34, late Monday night. He is accused of charges including aggravated sexual battery. 

Kabuka is monitored by GPS tracking per his sentence of Community Supervision for Life, officials say, which is how officers realized that he was living near Buena Vista Elementary School, Leap Daycare, Samaritan Ministries Childcare, and Ted Rhodes Park. 

According to the law, sex offenders cannot live within 1,000 feet of a childcare facility or a park. 

And it turns out, this isn’t the first time Kabuka has been cited for this. His criminal background includes similar violations dating back several years, and current charges say this is his third sex offender registration violation. 

Kabuka is also charged with sex offender residential violation and community supervision violation by felony offense. He was being held at the Davidson County Jail on a $7,500 bond, but is now listed as a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainee.
