Officers became aware of the group’s criminal activity after police began following an armed assault at the A1 Food and Beverage.

When the robbery took place, the victim was punched and repeatedly kicked, held against his will, and not allowed to leave until the assault was over, according to an incident report obtained by Channel 2 Action News,

“These activities are conducted by Real Northside Babies gang members to support and proliferate the gang financially and to gain notoriety, respect and intimidate others,” Floyd County officers wrote in the incident report.

  • Charles Maddarius Adams, 19
  • Jackobie Adams, 18
