Two days of terror end for captive Waco woman

by Mark Wiggins

WACO - A living nightmare has come to an end for one Waco woman.

According to police, on Sunday, a 32-year-old woman got into a vehicle with 36-year-old ex-convict Darryl DeWayne Williams.

The woman thought she was being taken to a destination in West Waco to see a friend. 

According to the arrest affidavit, that friend was never there.  Instead, Williams took his victim captive, locking her inside and repeatedly raping her while threatening her with a knife.

Sgt. Melvin Roseborough of the Waco Police Department says the victim made her escape on Tuesday.

"She was able to get out of that house, run to a nearby apartment complex, start knocking on doors, asking for help," says Roseborough. "Police did respond to that address as well as the address where Mr. Williams was, and Mr. Williams was taken into custody."

Roseborough says Williams was arrested without incident.

Williams had been released from parole supervision in November of 2010 after serving time on burglary and drug-related charges.

In 2003, he was sentenced in McLennan County to eight years in prison for possession of cocaine with the intent to deliver.  In 2004, he was sentenced to five years for burglary of a habitation in Tarrant County.

Williams now faces charges of aggravated sexual assault, and remains in the McLennan County jail on a $150,000 bond.

Police say the victim likely knew Williams, but because of the ongoing investigation, police are not identifying the nature of their relationship.
