Brittany Correri Beaten By Fancher
Brittany Correri, an Atlanta-area woman, has opened up about her terrifying experience online dating after a Wednesday night date turned violent. Correri said she was on a first date with a man called “Ben,” who she’d met on Hinge, and things were going well until the end of the night when he began hitting her repeatedly and eventually pulled a gun on her.
She said everything started smoothly, and he even met her friends and family. But later that night into Thursday morning, after leaving Hide Lounge in Buckhead, Correri said her date turned violent.
“He started beating me in my head, punching me everywhere – my forehead, my temples, my cheeks, jaws, throat, arms, my back. He was telling me that the date cost too much that I’m not worth that,” she told 11Alive.
“I just believe that he was dead set on killing me,” Correri said.
According to an incident report from Atlanta Police, around 6:30 a.m. Thursday, Fancher stopped his car in the 1100 block of Howell Mill Road and pulled Correri out of the car by her hair. A security guard in the area saw what was happening and began yelling and taking pictures. Fancher, who Correri said she believed got spooked, got back into his car and tried to drive off.
According to the report, it’s believed Fancher had been driving Correri around in his white BMW for about an hour before they stopped.
Fancher is still wanted at this time.
Now, Correri and the security guard who intervened, Fantasia Atkinson, are asking for anyone who knows Fancher – and where he might be – to tell the police.
“We can stop this from happening to someone else,” Atkinson told 11Alive. “The more that the women re-post his picture and we get it out there, the quicker that we can catch this guy.”
