Two more Southwest Florida fugitives featured on Most Wanted Wednesday are now behind bars.
[CAPTURED] Atmaram Persaud, 21, was involved in a verbal altercation with a pregnant victim, but when the conversation didn’t go his way, he became violent, despite the fact that a two-year-old child was watching the events unfold. When the woman tried to get away from Persaud, he tried to grab her phone, then struck her in the face, arms and shoulders.
Witnesses said Persaud then grabbed the victim by the neck and slammed her against the side of a car, before taking off running. He was eventually found at a friends house and charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant victim.
In addition to that charge, Persaud has also been jailed for two other counts of battery, as well as burglary. His current warrant is for VOP aggravated battery on a pregnant victim. He is now held without bond.
