EAST POINT, GA (WXIA) – Police said 20-year-old Terry Young was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with rape, kidnapping and robbery in connection with attacking three women at a townhome complex.
Young was discovered in an apartment just one complex away from the townhomes where they said he kidnapped, robbed and sexually assaulted three women within a week.
“We did have to thoroughly search the apartment, because he was hiding inside the apartment,” said East Point Police Lt. Cliff Chandler. “But he did not put up a fight once officers made contact with him.”
For days, female residents have been on edge, scared they’d become the next victim. To find out the suspect was so close by the entire time left one woman nearly speechless.
“Wow,” said resident Shay Harris. “So, you’re telling me he was there the whole time – like right there. Me and my mom were just talking about this. That’s crazy!”
