CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Crime Stoppers has arrested a man they wanted for assault and other charges.

Akeem Olajuwon O'Neal, who was featured on the Crime Stoppers in November 2010, turned himself in yesterday on his warrants for Assault (2 counts), Aggravated Kidnapping, and Theft of Property and a Failure to Appear on a separate Assault charge.

Police say O'Neal, also known as "Pluck", hit his girlfriend in the mouth with his fist while traveling down highway 58.

When the pair stopped at a gas station, the victim asked for help. 

Police say that made O'Neal angry. He slammed the woman against the wall, then tried to carry her to the car.

A customer intervened, and O'Neal drove off in the woman's car.
