Police seek more possible victims of Smyrna tattoo shop owner, employee

- Police want to talk to past customers of a Smyrna tattoo shop after the owner and an employee were both charged in two separate crimes.

"Today what we are asking for from the public is any information they may have, or for any additional victims to come forward," said Sgt. Lewis Defense, Smyrna Police Department.

Brandon Bond, owner of All or Nothing tattoo shop on South Cobb Parkway was arrested for aggravated assault after police said he pointed a gun at an off-duty federal agent demanding money while giving the man a tattoo. That case happened in February, but investigators said a similar incident happened in May.

"His customers went to him for a tattoo, at some point during the process of getting a tattoo, Mr. Bond got irritated with his customers, and he produced a firearm that he pointed at several of his customers," said Sgt. Defense.

Officers also charged a shop employee, Nicholas Gamboa with sexually assaulting a female customer during a piercing session on Monday.

Investigators are concerned that more victims of similar crimes may be out there.

"The public safety concern is that if there are additional victims out there, we would like to hear from them, we would like to further our investigation and if they feel they are truly a victim that we serve them justice," said Defense.

Both men remained in custody at the Cobb County Detention Center as of Friday afternoon without bond.

A special tip line was set up for possible additional victims or anyone who may have further information in the case. That number is 678-631-5031.
