KPD seeking kidnapping suspect from 2016 attack

Staff report • Feb 7, 2018 at 8:24 AM

Christion “Blake” Rhodes, 20, is currently wanted by Kingsport police, with his warrant stemming from an attack in 2016.

In May of that year at Hog Wild Saloon, Rhodes and two accomplices allegedly attacked two males, held them against their will and stole their belongings, leaving one victim “severely beaten in the head.”

Rhodes was later arrested and charged with assault and theft, but a grand jury ultimately upped the charges to aggravated robbery and kidnapping.

Rhodes, last known address of 209 Moreland Drive, failed to appear for later court appearances. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the KPD at (423) 246-9111.
