A man accused of holding eight women hostage in his $1million Georgia mansion and threatening to kill them if they left allegedly forced them to get breast implants and tattoos.
Kenndric Roberts, 33, was arrested on Tuesday after a 20-year-old woman called 911 saying she and other women were being held against their will in the Sandy Springs property and were being made to dance for money.
The victim told police she was sent to the Dominican Republic to get breast implants and all of the women were made to get the word ‘LOP’ tattooed on their wrists in reference to a gang member.
The woman claims Roberts threatened to kill her if she left the home and once said he would ‘pay someone to cut her chest open, take out the implants and cut her up.’
She said there were seven other women and children living in the home with Roberts but she was the only one desperate to leave.
Court records show the woman met Roberts on a website for sugar daddies called Seeking Arrangement.
She was allegedly presented with a contract to dance for him and signing bonus of $200,000 once the contract was complete.
The woman told police some of them were sent to work at the Pink Pony strip club.
She claimed that all the women living in the house were having sex with Roberts and that he carried around an AK-47 with him everywhere. She said the sex wasn’t ‘forced’ but she felt she couldn’t say no to him.
‘What we believe is he was luring these women to this house with promises of either modeling careers or financial assistance. We’re not 100 percent sure on that. The investigation is continuing,’ Sandy Springs police sergeant Sam Worsham told WSB-TV.
Officers helped the eight women leave the home on Tuesday before charging Roberts with false imprisonment and trafficking a person for labor.
The 911 recording captured the woman telling the operator she was in a ‘very bad situation’ and she needed help.
As the dispatcher learns more about what’s happening, her surprise is clear, her tone at times incredulous: ‘Wait. Did you say you’re in a house full of girls?’
‘Mmm hmm,’ the woman responds.
‘And somebody’s threatening to kill you if you leave?’
‘Who’s threatening to kill you? One of the girls?’
‘No, our boss.’
The woman says she knows her boss only as ‘Ken something,’ that she met him online and that it initially seemed like a good situation because she could make money for dancing.
She told the dispatcher that when she arrived about a month ago, he sent her to get plastic surgery.
‘He’s, like, so mean I just can’t stay,’ she said.
She described the home as ‘a very nice house’ in a gated subdivision, with cameras inside. According to Fulton County property records, the two-story brick home measures 6,806 square feet and is valued at $976,300.
The woman said Roberts also lived in the house, drove a lot of different cars and generally carried a gun with him.
Throughout the 14-minute 911 recording, the woman repeatedly says nothing illegal is going on but that she’s scared to leave.
‘Does he know holding someone against their will is against the law?’ the dispatcher asks.
‘He is so smart. He knows exactly what he’s doing,’ the woman said. ‘He’ll be like, ‘You can leave whenever you want,’ and then he’ll, like, threaten you right after.’
The woman told the dispatcher she was planning to run out of the house and call a car to come pick her up and take her to the airport because she had to catch a flight home to Orlando, Florida, that friends got for her.
The woman asked the dispatcher to have officers pull up in front of the house and that she’ll go out to meet them.
