U.S. Marshals Arrest Ex-Girlfriend of Multi-State Crime Spree Fugitive
Rendered assistance to fugitive even after being stabbed and shot at by Raymond Pruitt days earlier
 
Montgomery, AL - The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Montgomery, Alabama arrested Kisha Johnson, the ex-girlfriend of Raymond Pruitt, who was the subject of a recent multi-state manhunt ending in his arrest on Friday in Troy, Alabama.

Ironically, Pruitt’s attack on Johnson on April 05, 2016 where he allegedly stabbed her and shot at her with her own pistol was the catalyst for the manhunt. This attack, however, did not deter Johnson from helping the crime-spree bandit. During the fugitive investigation to locate Pruitt, it was determined that Johnson rendered assistance to him by giving him money and communicating with him while knowing he was a fugitive from the law. Her assistance enabled Pruitt to continue his crime spree, which resulted in five armed robberies in Alabama and the robbery and murder of a store clerk in Florida.

Johnson was arrested at her residence in Montgomery and charged with felony hindering prosecution and placed in the Montgomery County Detention Facility under a $15,000 bond.
