Dominatrix Bust

APRIL 20--A Connecticut dominatrix who describes herself as a “ruthless, plus size Bitch” in an online ad is locked up for allegedly extorting hush money from a 69-year-old man whom she recorded during their sessions, police report.

According to an arrest warrant application, the victim hired Fatin Ann Ward, a 35-year-old convicted sex offender, after spotting an ad she placed on Backpage.com. The victim, a Mt. Kisco, New York resident, told police that he traveled to Ward’s Waterbury apartment for encounters with the dominatrix.

In one online ad, Ward--identified as “Mistresses Teenie”--declares that she is “black, dominant, ruthless” and has “the desire to walk all over you. Literally.” The ad concludes, “You shall submit yourself to me. Don't keep me waiting, give into your desires and release your finances over to me.”

Ward’s client told police that she recorded him during one session. A subsequent police search of Ward’s phone turned up photos and videos of the client performing oral sex on Ward, sucking and rubbing her feet, and undressing and cleaning the 5' 6", 216-pound dominatrix’s oven.

As first reported by the Republican-American's Jonathan Shugarts, Ward allegedly threatened to distribute the incriminating videos online unless the man paid her off. The victim, cops say, agreed to hush money payments in excess of $5000.

The man, who provided Ward with more than half of the agreed upon amount, told investigators that the dominatrix contacted his wife and forwarded her the embarrassing videos. In a phone call monitored by police, Ward allegedly threatened to also send the footage to the victim’s children.

As police executed a search warrant at her home, Ward told investigators that she had not threatened the client, though she did acknowledge that the man had not paid what he owed her. Ward told cops that she had told the victim his wife would “have a heart attack if she knew about his fetish for black women.”

Pictured above and at left, Ward was arrested last week on larceny, voyeurism, and  disseminating voyeuristic materials charges. She is locked up in lieu of $100,000 bond.

According to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, Ward--who has also used the surname Ahmad--is a Tier II sex offender. She was convicted in October 2000 of an attempted lewd act on a minor, a felony for which she served state prison time.

Ward is required to register as a sex offender in both South Carolina, where she was convicted, and Connecticut, where she now resides. (9 pages)
