Detectives with the Red Oak Police Department arrested Dallas resident Keemon Dewayne Williams, 18, on the charge of aggravated robbery. He was booked into the Wayne McCollum Detention Center at 3:16 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6.
Williams is allegedly one of four people that took part in the robbery of a guest staying at America’s Best Value Inn on Sunday Jan. 27.
“On Jan. 27 around 8:50 p.m. a gentleman, the complainant, had called to meet with a young lady at his motel there at 202 South Interstate 35E at the America’s Best Value Inn,” Red Oak Police Department Craig Rudolph said. “On arrival she showed up with another man. He (the complainant) told them that they could not stay. They asked to use the restroom. He let them in.”
Rudolph said the woman is described as a black female that is 5 feet 8 inches, 160 pounds. She had black hair and had bad teeth. The man she was with is described as an older black male who was wearing blue jeans, a brown jacket and a baseball cap. He is about 6 feet 1 inch tall, 210 pounds with black and gray hair.
When the older black male went to use the restroom the female shut the door to the motel room. As the older black male was leaving the restroom the female asked the victim a question to divert his attention. This allowed the older black male time to pull a handgun out. The two then rushed the victim and forced him to the ground at gunpoint.
Rudolph said two younger black males, one of which was Williams, were called up. They then entered the room and also produced handguns. They restrained the victim, relieved him of his property and then they all left in a vehicle. The victim was left in the restroom. A little more than $1,000 worth of property was taken from the victim.
Detectives were able to track down some leads and an arrest warrant was obtained for Williams.
Williams was arrested Tuesday Feb. 5 at an apartment complex in the 5200 block of South Hampton Road in Dallas. The victim and witnesses were able to identify Williams. Members of the Dallas Police Department assisted in the arrest.
Williams was booked into the Red Oak jail, later arraigned and transported to the Wayne McCollum Dentation Center in Waxahachie. He has a bond of a $100,000.
Police are seeking information on the others involved in this case and are following leads at this time. Anyone with information can contact Det. Bobby Bailey at the Red Oak Police Department at 972-617-7632. The Red Oak Police Department is located at 547 N. Methodist St.
