Paul Hollins, 32, Charged with Sexual Battery  
On Friday, August 28, 2020, Paul Hollins (DOB 9/11/87), who was arrested on the University of Tennessee campus on Thursday for trespassing, was charged with one count of sexual battery for an incident that occurred at the Target on Ray Mears Boulevard. 

On August 19, a female victim reported that she was approached inside of the Target on Ray Mears Boulevard by Hollins, who stated that he was a YouTuber making a video called “Cash or Grab”. Hollins then instructed the victim that he would ask a series of questions for a cash prize. He also stated without a thorough explanation that if she answered incorrectly then it’s a “grab”. The victim stated that after she did not answer any questions correctly, Hollins asked her to lean down for a hug, at which point he slapped her buttocks with both hands without consent. 

The investigation remains ongoing and additional charges are pending on the suspect, as Hollins is suspected of committing the same offense under the same guise against numerous female victims in Knoxville, including on the UT campus. The Knoxville Police Department is requesting any other possible victims of the suspect to contact Investigator Brandon Wardlaw at 865-215-7017, even if they previously reported it to the UTPD.
