Federal agents have arrested a man they believe is responsible for kidnapping Tekashi69, TMZ reports.
Anthony Jamel Ellison was arrested last week on a federal warrant. A grand jury indicted Ellison on one count of conspiracy to obstruct commerce by robbery, one count of obstructing commerce by robbery and one count of carrying a firearm to commit a crime.
Tekashi69 is currently in the hospital after he was caught lackin in his hometown of Brooklyn, TMZ reports.
6ix 9ine was reportedly kidnapped, pistol-whipped and robbed and is now in the hospital.
Tekashi69 was reportedly working on a music video in Brooklyn early Sunday morning, and ended his video shoot around 4 a.m. Tekashi was then allegedly set up upon reaching home.
A car pulled up and blocked his driveway, and three hooded gunmen exited, grabbed the “Gummo” rapper, and pistol-whipped him, knocking him unconscious.
The gunmen threw 6ix 9ine in the back of the car, and drove him around, while demanding money and jewelry.
The gunmen drove 6ix 9ine back to his home where they gained access inside the rapper’s home and made off with $750,000 in jewelry and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash.
Tekashi’s baby mama and daughter were inside the house, but not hurt. The gunmen drove away with Tekashi69 still in the backseat.
Tekashi was able to escape by jumping out the backdoor. One of the gunmen began chasing him, but let him get away because he was afraid he’d be ID’d.
Tekashi then jumped into the backseat of a stranger’s vehicle and pleaded for help. The stranger called 911 and asked 69 to get out of the car at an intersection.
An ambulance arrived and took Tekashhi69 to a hospital. Doctors are performing various test, including CT scan.
