A Norcross man was being held in Floyd County Jail without bond Tuesday after Rome police officers charged him with eight counts of aggravated assault and cocaine possession, reports stated.

According to Floyd County Jail reports:

Maurico Marin-Soto, 31, was also charged with six counts of second degree cruelty to children, stalking and aggressive driving after police arrested him around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

He allegedly tracked down his victims who were staying at a women's shelter, forcing them to be moved into a local motel because they were a danger to the other residents.

One of the victims left the motel to get groceries and realized she was being followed. He began ramming her car, which contained the victim, another adult and six children under the age of 14.

Marin-Soto then tried to ‘block in’ the victim’s car before police officers stopped his vehicle near the intersection of Turner McCall Boulevard and East First Street.

Cocaine was found inside of his vehicle.
