Community Menace: Mathew Todd Corley
Subject spit in victim’s face and tried to snatch her cell phone.
On 12/31 Police were dispatched to the 800 block of Peachtree Street in response to an attempted robbery call. Upon arrival the (female) victim reported that a white male walked up to her and spit in her face, and in a very menacing manner. When she pulled out her cell phone to call for help, the subject grabbed her and tried to wrest the cell phone from her. A tussle ensued, but she was able to fend him off. As the subject walked away he cursed and threatened the victim. Police units canvassing the area intercepted the subject at 10th & Piedmont and brought him back to the incident location, where the victim positively identified the accused.
31-year-old Mathew Todd Corley was arrested on charges of Battery, Attempted Robbery, and Criminal Damage. Our research shows extensive arrest and criminal history for assault. In a 2007 Dekalb County case, he was ordered to undergo a 12-week anger management program. His history clearly reflects a continuing menace to the community. Since then he has continued to engage in violent criminal offenses in multiple jurisdictions including Fulton County. Given that his profile bears resemblance to the Ricky Love case, another violent individual who for years attacked and terrorized people in the Midtown community, we have designated him as a high-priority court watch case. He remains in the Fulton County jail as of this writing, and is ineligible for bond according to online records.
