Law enforcement finally put the cuffs on a suspect connected to Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s recent kidnapping and physical assault attack. New reports claim a former affiliate of the self-proclaimed “King of New York” is now in police custody.
According to reports, federal agents nabbed suspect Anthony Jamel Ellison in early November on a federal warrant.
Federal agents arrested Anthony Jamel Ellison a week ago on a federal warrant. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, a grand jury indicted Ellison on 1 count of conspiracy to obstruct commerce by robbery, 1 count of obstructing commerce by robbery … and 1 count of carrying a firearm to commit a crime. Ellison was hauled into jail on Nov. 6, and remains in a federal prison in Manhattan, awaiting trial. He pled not guilty to all charges. (TMZ)
Back in July, 6ix9ine suggested someone from his team might have had something to do with his kidnapping.
“It was an inside job – it wasn’t no outside n*ggas. It’s n*ggas that know how the King of New York moves, you know what I’m saying? The only person that can get a Pharaoh in Egypt is the person who helped build the f*cking kingdom. The n*gga that’s right next to him. The n*gga that know who built that sh*t, that got the blueprints.”
Tek went to Instagram to speak on the headline-generating attack and likened the situation to XXXTentacion‘s murder robbery.

According to reports, Tek fell victim to a physical assault and kidnapping following a Brooklyn video shoot.
We’re told when he got there another car pulled up and blocked his driveway. Our sources say that’s when 3 hooded gunmen got out of the other car, grabbed Tekashi and pistol whipped him … knocking him unconscious. We’re told the next thing Tekashi knew, he was in the back seat of the car as the gunmen were driving around, telling him if they didn’t get what they wanted from him — jewelry and money — they would kill him.
