Update: An arrest has been made in the carjacking of pint size R&B singer Bobby V, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Police say the “Slow Down” singer was approached by two black males wearing hoodies as he parked his 2013 Bentley at the Hot Beats studio on Spring Street in midtown Atlanta Tuesday night. One of the men pointed a gun at his head and demanded his car. Bobby V did not resist, and the thugs drove off in his vehicle.
The Bentley was later found abandoned at the nearby Arts Center MARTA Station with minor damage to one of the front wheels. Bobby V, whose real name is Robert Wilson, was able to identify one of the suspects. Police are withholding the suspect’s identification until the second suspect is in custody.
Hot Beats recording studio was the scene of a tragic shooting in 2009. Adair Freeman, 19, was shot twice in the chest by two men who demanded his fake diamond chain.
Melvin Bardwell, 25, was arrested in that case and charged with homicide and aggravated robbery.
The Hot Beats studio, located at 1200 Spring Street, is owned by Adair Freeman’s father Russell Freeman.
