(Majyck Radio)-Tuesday night “Bobby” Wilson, better known as R&B singer Bobby Valentino or Bobby V was carjacked. An arrest has been made but Atlanta police say a second arrest will happen as soon as the second suspect is located. The crime happened in a parking lot adjacent to the Hot Beats Recording Studio at 1200 Spring Street just north of 14th Street.
Officer Gregory Lyon of the Atlanta Police Department said Bobby was approached shortly after 8:30 p.m. by two black males wearing gray hooded sweatshirts and armed with a gun. Valentino cooperated with the robbers and allowed them to take his red 2013 Bentley.
The vehicle was spotted a short time later abandoned.
