Jokisha Brown’s Ex-Boyfriend Alfredo Capote Wanted For Rape, Kidnapping, Armed Robbery
Police say someone shot Jokisha Brown while she was sitting in her car outside a strip of shops on the 2100 block of Cheshire Bridge Road around 10:15 p.m. Friday.
“We’re actually interviewing witnesses on the scene. We do have a number of people who were on the scene when the incident occurred. We are collecting evidence, a number of shell casings,” said Atlanta Police Capt. Ben McGee.
Brown’s friend, Jordan Jackson and others, confirmed to Gehlbach that Brown had been the victim of a violent and elaborate abduction from her Gwinnett County home. She escaped only by jumping from a moving car.
“She went through a hard, very, very hard time with this breakup,” Jackson said. “She steadily voiced it, she feared for her life that something might happen to her.”
Gwinnett police investigated Brown’s ex-boyfriend Alfredo Capote in April.
Gwinnett County Police are actively searching for a violent and dangerous suspect named Alfredo L. Capote, (B/M 29 years old) of Atlanta, Georgia. He is wanted for the following charges; Rape, Armed Robbery, False Imprisonment and Kidnapping. On April 08, 2016, around 2 p.m. police were called to a home in Duluth where they met with a seventeen year old male. They learned that the previous day, April 07, 2016, around 7 a.m. his mother’s boyfriend, Alfredo Capote stopped by to visit. Shortly after Capote arrived at the home, a masked male entered the home and tied up the seventeen year old son and his thirty five year old mother.
The mother was then told by Capote that the home invasion was staged because he needed her money. Capote then proceeded to rape the victim at gunpoint. He then tied her up. The son was told not to call police or his mother would be killed. The victim’s son was left tied up inside the home. He was able to free himself hours later. He did not call police fearing that his mother would be killed. The two suspects and the female victim left the home and traveled to a hotel in Cobb County where the two suspects went their separate ways. The victim spent the night at the hotel with Capote where she was raped overnight and held at gunpoint, unable to escape.
The suspect and victim left the hotel the following morning and traveled to a home in Perry Georgia. After leaving that home, the victim saw a window of opportunity to escape and jumped out of the moving vehicle near an intersection. She jumped into a vehicle in the parking lot with an unknown person and pleaded for help. Police were called and the victim was saved around 4 p.m.
The suspect has ties to Atlanta and is a native of Louisiana. He does not have an extensive criminal history. However, at this point, he is wanted for several aggravated felonies and should be considered very dangerous and armed.
