Suspect sought in beating caught by hotel cameras

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police have identified a suspect in a beating and kidnapping seen on security video from a downtown hotel.

Police said Saturday they have issued a warrant for 35-year-old Elvin Terrell, whose address was not given.

Security video shows a man and woman arguing in the hotel lobby about 4:50 a.m. Friday. The man begins beating the woman. Outside the hotel, video shows another woman apparently trying to intervene, but the man puts the unconscious beating victim into a car and drives away.

Police said detectives later found a 6-year-old boy, uninjured, in a room rented by one of the people involved. The child was in protective custody. Investigators have made contact with a woman claiming to be the child's mother, but she is not cooperating with investigators.
