R&B singer Bobby Valentino was carjacked at gunpoint in Midtown Atlanta
Authorities say singer Robert Wilson – known as Bobby Valentino – parked a red 2013 Bentley in a lot outside the Hot Beats Recording Studio on Spring Street and was approached by two armed robbers. Police say Valentino complied with the men and they drove away in the car.
An off-duty lieutenant heard a call over police radio about the incident and found the luxury car abandoned nearby at the Arts Center MARTA station.
Police have identified one of the two men. Robert Unrico McFarland, 18, was arrested Tuesday shortly after the carjacking. Authorities say Wilson and witnesses identified McFarland as a suspect and he was taken into custody.
