Another Escort Robbed by Suspected Gang Member

The Bad John

As I’ve reported before there have been a series of robberies that target local esocrts. Some rumors were that a fellow escort was setting up the competition but I heard that there’s it’s a gang that wants easy money and to prove a point to the local sex workers. That point being they will need pimps to be safe and the gang was ready to play daddy.

GoUpstate is reporting on another robbery and this time there is a picture of the assailant. I noticed his Pittsburgh Pirates hat which is worn by some blood sets because the “P” is used to represent the word Piru which is a term Bloods use to describe themselves. Former Greenville Dragnet blogger Joe Friday had pointed out that there were Gangster Disciples in the area so if Bloods are moving in there may be trouble coming for people beside escorts as the rivals fight over turf.

From GoUpstate:

Greenville County authorities are asking for help in identifying a man accused of taking money from a female escort and tying her up against her will.

The woman told deputies that a man knocked on her motel door at 33 Beacon Drive at about 9:45 p.m. on Oct. 22. She said when she opened the door the suspect forced his way into the room and demanded money. The man then pointed a black handgun at her and restrained her. After he stole an undisclosed amount of cash, he left the room. He is wanted on kidnapping and armed robbery charges, according to a written report from the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies are looking for a black man about 20 to 30 years old. He is about 6 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 3 inches and weighs about 250 pounds. Witnesses said he left the motel in a sport utility vehicle, possibly a Ford Explorer, according to the report.

This case is similar to two other cases that authorities are currently investigating. Anyone who has information leading to the identity and arrest of this man are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME.

Be careful out there ladies. It might be time to think about taking a pay cut and doing some bartending at a stripclub.

The robbery happened at The Wingate by Windham motel which is a fairly inexpensive hotel (under $100 a nght) but is hardly a fleabag motel. I’ve never been but I’m surprised that someone would pick a place like that to pull a stick-up.

The new word on the street is that local escorts are not taking Black clients because of the number of robberies involving young Black men.
