Police have arrested 25-year-old Daryl Williams for forcing his way into a woman’s apartment in Brooklyn and trying to rape her. Cops had released surveillance images and video of Williams and had asked the public’s help identifying him and tracking him down. The incident occurred in the vicinity of Meeker Avenue and Kingsland Avenue around 3:30 p.m. The police said that Williams knocked at a woman’s door and asked if “Jeffery” was home.

When she opened the door to speak to Williams he forced his way inside pushing the victim into her bedroom and threatening her with a knife he said he had in his bag. He then tried to force the victim to perform a sex act but she fought back by punching Williams in the groin and trying to flee the apartment. Williams tackled her and tried to rip off her dress. The victim was able to scream and was hit on the back of the head with a door while Williams fled the home.

The victim was taken to Woodhull Hospital for her injuries. Williams is now facing multiple charges, including attempted rape and strangulation.
