Suspect in suburban Atlanta abduction denied bond

ATLANTA — Bond has been denied for a man accused in the abduction of a suburban Atlanta teen.

Wildrego Jackson appeared in federal court in Atlanta today. Police identified 29-year-old Jackson as a suspect in the hours following the Sept. 17 abduction of Ayvani Perez.

Jackson was arrested the next day when he appeared in court for an unrelated case.

Authorities say armed men broke into the family's home in Ellendale early in the morning and took Ayvani at gunpoint. About 36 hours later, she was dropped off safe at her aunt's home in Conyers.

Jackson faces a federal kidnapping charge. Another man was arrested in the case and is being held on immigration charges.
