Alleged Ghost Face Gangster on parole arrested in stabbing 

A man police believe is connected to the Ghost Face Gangsters was arrested in a racially motivated stabbing, police told the Athens-Banner Herald.

Emory Mason Dean, 25, was released Jan. 17 on parole from Ware State Prison in Waycross, the newspaper reported. 

He was immediately arrested on charges of aggravated assault related to the beating and stabbing of a 28-year-old Athens man in September 2016.
