Domestic related sexual assault, kidnapping and assault

 

On September 28, 2019 the Marietta Police Department was contacted by a victim (name withheld intentionally) who stated her estranged husband had raped her.  An investigation took place and warrant 19-W-10029 for the suspect, fifty-three-year-old Kenneth Terry of Connecticut was secured.  It was discovered that Terry was already on Federal Probation out of Connecticut.  U.S. Marshals Service as well as metro Atlanta area law enforcement agencies were notified and have been looking for Terry.

 

Since September 28th Terry has attempted to contact the victim on multiple occasions.  The victim relocated to another metro Atlanta area city in an attempt to conceal her location from Terry.

 

Terry discovered the victim’s location last night, attacked her and kidnapped her.  The investigation spans multiple jurisdictions and details are still being discovered.  It is believed that the kidnapping and initial assault took place somewhere in Sandy Springs.  Terry forced his estranged wife into her own vehicle and drove to the Marietta area.  The victim had been severely beaten and stabbed before Terry pulled into a Marietta hotel parking lot.  Terry had been driving the victim’s vehicle and briefly stepped out of it while stopped in the parking lot.  The victim seized the opportunity to lock her car doors, get into her driver’s seat and navigate her vehicle to the front of the hotel.  The victim jumped out and cried for help while Terry attempted to force her back into the car.  A security guard for the hotel noticed the struggle and confronted Terry.  Terry jumped back into the victim’s car and drove away.  Moments later the security guard called 911 asking for police and medical help.

 

The victim was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.


We need the public’s help locating Terry who should be considered dangerous and possibly armed with a knife.  He is believed to still be in the Atlanta area and will most likely be driving a 2007 black Chevy Impala with Connecticut tags.  Anyone with information about his location is urged to contact Marietta Detective Michael Selleck at (770) 794-5372 immediately.
