On Tuesday, a 20 year old woman saved her life and potentially the lives of seven other women after she alerted police that they were being held against their will by 33 year old Kenndric Roberts. The woman told 9-1-1 dispatchers, “It’s house of full of girls and if I try to leave, he’ll try to kill me.” She also told them that she had met Roberts on a dating site called ‘Seeking Arrangements’ and that he forced her to have plastic surgery and dance for him.
When police showed up to the address, it was in a mansion in a very prominent Atlanta neighborhood. Neighbors told 11 Alive that they had always seen luxury cars in the driveway and noticed that the blinds were always shut, however, they never suspected that there was any illicit activity going on. 11 Alive reports, “Four of the women are receiving victims’ assistance [and] the others have returned to their homes or are staying with friends.” The women are between the ages of 19 to 23.
At the moment, Roberts has been charged with false imprisonment and trafficking of persons for labor. Seeking Arrangements denies any involvement with this case.
