Two men accused of taking a businessman hostage and brutalizing him after carjacking his vehicle were denied bond Saturday after appearing before a Clayton County judge.
Frederick Anderson and David Stark, one of five men suspected in the attack last week, will appear before another Clayton judge on April 2.
The 69-year-old victim, who did not want to be identified, told Channel 2 Action News he feared for his life. “They told me over and over again they (were) going to kill me,” the victim said.
Police said the man was ambushed outside of his business, forced into his vehicle, taken to an ATM, forced to withdraw money, then driven to a second location where he was beaten so severely he required hospitalization.
“Why kick you in the face? Hit you upside the head?” the victim asked Channel 2. “You know, they’re just mean.”
Police continue to search for the three other suspects and is asking anyone with information to call 770-473-5400
