Georgia Man Arrested on Suspicion of Holding 8 Women Captive

The woman who called police can be heard on a 911 recording saying that she and the other women were supposed to dance for money. "It's a house of full of girls and ... if I try to leave, he'll try to kill me", the caller told the dispatcher.

Roberts has been charged with five counts of false imprisonment and five for trafficking a person for labor.

Investigators believe "there are potentially other victims", according to Sandy Springs police Sgt. Sam Worsham, but he stressed that only one woman has made a complaint.

"She advised that she, and other girls, were presented with a contact from Kendrick in which he promised them a "signing bonus" upon completion of their contract", the affidavit states.

The victim told police she met Roberts on the dating site Seeking Arrangements, which connects wealthy men to "sugar babies".

She said there were cameras and weapons in the home.

"He's so mean, I just can't stay", she said.

None of the women required medical attention when they were rescued from the home.

But she remains hopeful organizations such as hers can make a difference: "You change lives one girl at a time".

Police said the current charges are related to the one woman who called with the complaint. He is being held without bond in Fulton County Jail with another hearing planned for later this month.

According to Fulton County property records cited by krmg, the two-story brick home measures 6,806 square feet and is valued at $976,300. She said she wanted to leave but was afraid her "boss" would kill her if she did so.

Asks the dispatcher who by now is in between takes writing a best selling novel: 'Does he know holding someone against their will is against the law?'

The case came to the attention of police Tuesday morning, after a desperate 911 call from one of the women inside the home. "He knows exactly what he's doing", the woman replied.

Dispatcher: So what do you want the police to do?

The woman asked the dispatcher to have officers pull up in front of the house and said she would go out to meet them.
