Man held girlfriend, 11 children in Georgia motel room

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) – Police say a man facing charges of false imprisonment and obstruction held his girlfriend and 11 children inside a motel room for about five hours.

DeKalb County Police Major Steve Fore said police aren’t sure of 36-year-old Korrie Thomas’ relationship to any of the children. He said the children are related to each other and ranged in age from 3 months old to 17 years old.

Police initially responded to the motel in Decatur because of a domestic assault report. After surrounding the motel for several hours, a SWAT team entered the room and found Thomas had stabbed himself in the neck. No one else was injured.

He was taken to a hospital in critical condition Tuesday morning.
