A fugitive sought in connection with a violent attack last spring was captured this week in a neighboring county.

 

David Ye El Choi, 28, of Johns Creek has been on the Forsyth County Sheriff’s most wanted list since June 1, when he failed to appear in Superior Court for an arraignment hearing.

 

Choi was indicted in March on two counts of battery and one count each of robbery and attempted kidnapping.

 

According to a sheriff’s report, deputies found Choi on Wednesday at a residence in Norcross.

 

He was taken into custody without incident and is being held without bond at the Forsyth County Detention Center.

 

The charges against Choi stem from an April 17, 2010, incident in a shopping center parking lot off Hwy. 9 in Cumming.

 

According to the report, Choi and another man jumped a 17-year-old acquaintance from behind about 11:30 p.m. and attempted to force him into their vehicle.

 

“When Choi and the other male were not able to get the victim into the vehicle, they threw him to the ground and began to kick and punch him,” the report said.

 

Before driving off, Choi and the other man reportedly took the teen’s cell phone and some cash.

The second suspect in the attack was not arrested.
