Convicted Robber Charged with Attacking Woman on Glastonbury Road
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sex Crimes detectives this morning charged convicted robber Joequarius Williams, 23, with aggravated assault for the August 2nd attack on a woman in the 800 block of Glastonbury Road.
The 27-year-old victim had been walking from work to a bus stop on Murfreesboro Pike around noon when Williams stopped to offer her a ride home. She accepted. As he drove, Williams began to make unsolicited sexual advances. When they arrived at the victim’s apartment complex, she quickly got out of the car. Surveillance video shows Williams waiting for the victim to walk out of view prior to jogging in her direction.
The victim reported that Williams attacked her in a breezeway, placing her in a chokehold until she lost consciousness. When she regained consciousness, she felt herself being dragged across a parking lot. Williams, seeing her awake, again choked her causing her to again briefly lose consciousness. When she awoke, Williams fled, apparently frightened off by a maintenance man.
Additional charges related to this case are anticipated. Williams was driving a black Dodge Charger with front right bumper damage. Anyone who believes they may have been victimized by Williams is asked to contact the MNPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at 615-862-7540. He is jailed in lieu of $80,000 bond.
Williams was convicted of robbery in May 2016 and received a six year sentence.
