Seattle cops: Woman makes harrowing escape from vicious pimp

SEATTLE (AP) — Prosecutors in Seattle say a young woman made two harrowing attempts to escape her vicious pimp that ended with her rescue by a ride-share driver who engaged in a gunfight with the man. Authorities said this week that Winston Burt was arrested as he left a rental home accompanied by other women he had trafficked. Authorities say his street name, “Dice Capone,” was tattooed on the faces of some women he trafficked. Burt is being held on $750,000 bail. It’s not clear if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf. The woman who escaped was taken to a hospital with severe injuries.
