Police seeking third suspect in Pittsburgh attack

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 6:04 PM

The APD has already arrested two people in connection with the Feb. 4 attack of 20-year-old Brandon White outside a convenience store and purported gang hangout in Southwest Atlanta's Pittsburgh neighborhood.

The third person authorities believe was involved in the beating — which was meted out because White is gay, and video of which went viral on the Internet shortly afterward — is Dareal Demare Williams, who is said to be hiding out in the Erie, Pa., area.

From a release:

The FBI has received information that DAREAL DEMARE WILLIAMS, a fugitive wanted out of Atlanta, Georgia is currently hiding out in the Erie Area. WILLIAMS, a known member of the “Pittsburgh Jack City Gang”, is believed to be staying with friends and relatives in the Erie Area. The “Pittsburgh Jack City Gang” also known as “Jack City 1029” is a violent street gang based out of Atlanta, Georgia. An arrest warrant was issued for WILLIAMS out of Fulton County Georgia for aggravated assault and robbery from an incident occurring February 4, 2012. The charges were filed after members of Atlanta Police Department were alerted to a video of the incident that the suspects had apparently uploaded online. WILLIAMS, a minor, was charged as an adult for his role in the robbery and assault. A significant cash reward is being offered by the Atlanta authorities for information leading to the arrest of WILLIAMS. As always, anyone providing information may remain anonymous. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of WILLIAMS should call the Erie FBI office at 814-452-4516 or after hours 412-432-4000 or the Erie Police Department.

The reward for information leading to Williams' arrest is up to $25,000. Suspects Christopher Cain and Dorian Moragne have already been apprehended.
