On April 08, 2016, around 2 p.m. police were called to a home in Duluth where they met with a seventeen year old male. They learned that the previous day, April 07, 2016, around 7 a.m. his mother’s boyfriend, Alfredo Capote stopped by to visit. Shortly after Capote arrived at the home, a masked male entered the home and tied up the seventeen year old son and his thirty five year old mother.

The mother was then told by Capote that the home invasion was staged because he needed her money. Capote then proceeded to rape the victim at gunpoint. He then tied her up. The son was told not to call police or his mother would be killed. The victim’s son was left tied up inside the home. He was able to free himself hours later. He did not call police fearing that his mother would be killed. The two suspects and the female victim left the home and traveled to a hotel in Cobb County where the two suspects went their separate ways. The victim spent the night at the hotel with Capote where she was raped overnight and held at gunpoint, unable to escape.

After leaving that home, the victim saw a window of opportunity to escape and jumped out of the moving vehicle near an intersection. She jumped into a vehicle in the parking lot with an unknown person and pleaded for help. Police were called and the victim was saved around 4 p.m.

One of the accounts not linked to the family has raised more than $15,000. “Why would someone do that?" she said. "I haven’t got a dime, I haven’t received nothing, I never knew nothing about none of them, only one." “You got nerve enough to take the money that somebody donated to bury somebody with," said Brown's mother.
