Caught on Video & At-Large: Man Beats, Kidnaps Woman, 6-Year-Old Boy Left Behind in Hotel: Update

Someone, help catch this sick motherfucker. The sickening video is here. I hope, but do not believe, the kidnap victim is still alive. Why didn’t anyone try to intervene or stop it? Is this still a country where people think a man beating the shit out of a women is “personal business”?

The violent confrontation unfolded inside the lobby of the Holiday Inn Hotel on Loyola Avenue, where at least two security cameras are focused on guests.

Surveillance video shows a woman speaking to what appears to be a hotel employee when just before 5 a.m. A man wearing a red shirt walks in, pulls the woman aside and starts to get violent. The unidentified woman is then pulled out of the hotel lobby and brutally beaten several times.

Another woman runs up to the couple and seems to be pleading with the man to stop. He pulls the half-conscious woman towards a nearby red car, but is stopped by that second woman. He finally manages to pull his victim into a silver or light colored BMW-type car and then drives away.

“If people really understood the whole scenario and really understood the dynamics of domestic violence and the power and control of relationships that go on. I think they’d have more sympathy and understanding of what these women are going through,” said Landry.

The domestic violence expert hopes the brutal attack and kidnapping will help police track down the trio captured in the disturbing footage.

“There’s got to be people in the community that know these people. Family members or friends will call. Because obviously this woman needs help,” said Landry.

The NOPD says a six-year-old boy was discovered inside a hotel room booked by someone in that group. The child is now in protective custody.

“and no arrests were made”

Raids by Dallas FBI and San Antonio FBI resulted in a combined five arrests and two recovered teens.

The FBI said three teenage girls, ages 15, 16 and 17, from the Houston area were recovered. The Houston FBI said the girls were working as prostitutes and no arrests were made.

“Child prostitution remains a persistent threat to children across America,” said Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division. “This operation serves as a reminder that these abhorrent crimes can happen anywhere and that the FBI remains committed to stopping this cycle of victimization and holding the criminals who profit from this exploitation accountable.”

FBI : Prostitution crackdown results in rescue of 105 children, including 3 in Houston., 7/29/2013.

A crime so “persistent…abhorrent” there are no arrests? No pimp at all or a john for statutory rape, nobody? We’re supposed to applaud the authorities for not arresting the girls for prostitution? Maybe if men got arrested more often, and this is fueled by men, maybe it wouldn’t be so fucking “persistent” a “threat.”
