POLICE have arrested and charged a man in connection with assault on Shonette Williams.
Thirty-three-year-old Guyanese national Gordon Andrew Roberts is also facing charges of arson for the fire which destroyed Williams’ home at Phillips Road, St Stephen’s Hill, Black Rock, St Michael on November 16.
Williams’ story had appeared in the Daily Nation last Monday, stating that police at District A had not treated her complaints with the respect they deserved after she was assaulted by an unnamed former partner who subsequently set her home on fire.
She had allegedly received death threats from the individual who said he was going to kill her before he turned himself in.
The police asked for the public’s assistance in locating Roberts, but warned them not to approach him as he was armed and dangerous.
He will appear in District A Magistrates court tomorrow.
Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith had ordered an investigation into the incident. (PR)
