NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A 20-year-old alleged gang member has been taken into custody in Norfolk by U.S. Marshals for multiple crimes they say he’s committed around Hampton Roads this month.

Akail Allen — who Marshals say is in the Gotti Gang and also goes by “Tinkman,” “Tink” and “Slick” — is facing multiple felony charges in both Norfolk and Newport News:

Norfolk (warrants issued April 13)

· Malicious wounding

· Use of firearm in commission of a felony

· Possession of firearm by violent convicted felon

Newport News (warrants issued April 21)

· Robbery

· Abduction

· Use of firearm in the commission of a felony

· Conspiracy to commit a felony

In 2019, Allen was among six people taken into a custody after police chased a vehicle from Chesapeake into Virginia Beach. Allen, 19 at the time, was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a weapon within city limits and not wearing a seatbelt. He was sentenced to serve six months in connection with this case.
