NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A woman was raped at gunpoint Wednesday morning at a Metro Nashville Park.

Police said the victim was walking home in the Edgehill area when she met Shelly Dalton, who offered to give her a ride home.

She didn't get in his car, but he walked her to Rose Park and motioned he had a gun before sexually assaulting her, according to police reports.

Dalton was found about a half-mile away from the park near the intersection of 12th Avenue South and Summit, where he confessed about the attack to police.
