A man has been arrested and is accused of holding several women against their will inside his Georgia home.

Kenndric Roberts is seen in a photo released by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office on March 8. 2017.

Kenndric Roberts, 33, was arrested Tuesday morning around 8 a.m. at his home in Sandy Springs, north of Atlanta. He has been charged with false imprisonment and trafficking of persons for labor.

Police were alerted to the situation after one of the women called 911 and told them she and other women were being held against their will. The woman told the 911 operator that the women were forced to dance for money.

She says she met Roberts on the social media site Seeking Arrangements, which connects women with wealthy men.

When officers arrived at the home, they found a total of eight women inside. The women have all been removed from the residence.

Roberts is expected to make his first appearance Thursday morning.
