Headshot 1 - CopyStatus: Presumed to be Active (Operating Freely)

Description: Violent Sex Trafficker

This trafficker, whose identity is still yet unknown, was videotaped at the Motel 6 at 3585 Chamblee Tucker Rd, Atlanta, GA violently attacking a young woman that he sexually exploits for commercial gain.

He entered her vehicle, took her keys, then struck her forcefully across the face with his fist. Next, he crossed to the driver’s side, threw her across the car into the passenger seat, and then took off in the vehicle, kidnapping her as she tried to escape.

He is a presumed member of the Black Mafia Family due to his association with the Motel 6 on Chamblee Tucker Rd.

If you see this man, do NOT try to approach him, but call law enforcement immediately!
