According to police, a woman called 911 Tuesday morning asking for help getting out of a home located in the 100 block of Strauss Lane. 

Police released the 911 call Wednesday, which revealed the 20-year-old woman who asked for help wanted to leave the home, but feared her "boss" would kill her. She said during the call that the other women in the home were being forced to dance for money. 

Sandy Springs police requested the FBI's assistance in the investigation. Officers and agents ended up rescuing the eight women from the home.

Roberts was taken into custody and is being held at the Fulton County Jail.

Police said the women were lured into the home because they were having financial problems, and then they weren't allowed to leave. 

The FBI is now looking for more victims, and investigating whether there could be out-of-state ties to what was going on inside the home.
