On Tuesday, Officers Anthony Caiazzo and Keith Hanson spoke to a concerned citizen who had information about an assault that happened over the weekend on Noble Avenue.
Based on what they learned and a description provided, police went to Noble Avenue looking for the suspect, identified as Williams. They were told he had just walked to a nearby store. Police soon located him and took him into custody without incident.
The attack occurred on July 27 at the 51-year-old victim’s apartment. The victim told police that he heard a knock at his door at about 3:30 a.m. and observed Williams and Williams’ girlfriend in the doorway. Williams confronted the victim and accused him of talking “junk” to his girlfriend. Williams then threw the victim to the ground and punched and kicked him before stealing his rent money, the victim stated. The victim suffered serious facial injuries.
Williams was arrested Tuesday and held overnight on $100,000 bond pending his arraignment.
