Kenndric Roberts, a 33 year old from Sandy Springs, Atlanta, Georgia man has been arrested after ‘allegedly’ hostaging eight dancers at his million dollar mansion, to kill each one of the hostages if they tried to escape.
Womens’ rescue came after one of them, a 20 year old woman, called 911, leading to authorities raiding the luxury home on Wednesday morning at 8am where Roberts allegedly held the women against their will.
The 20 year old woman who spoke on the phone with a soft, hesitant and shaky voice told a dispatcher that her ‘boss’ had a gun and sent her to get plastic surgery. While he willingly sent her to surgery, he also kept telling the woman she could leave anytime, but threatened to kill her if she did.
On his arrest, Kenndric Traman Roberts reported WXIA, faced charges of false imprisonment and trafficking a person for labor. The man at present remains in custody at Fulton County Jail pending an initial court appearance.
It was reported that the hostages ranged in age from 19 years old to 23, with one of them having met Roberts through online dating site, ‘Seeking Arrangements’ with two others coming through a local strip venue, the Mardi Gras Adult Party Place, which had been the focus of a raid in December.
There were seven other women in the home, but only one wanted to leave.
