Keith Williams, a freshman offensive lineman at Monmouth, caused a campus lockdown on Tuesday night and was later suspended indefinitely from the football team. Williams was arrested and charged with first-degree armed robbery after an incident on campus Tuesday night in which he is accused of attempting to rob two females students with a fake gun. Via NJ.com:
Two students reported that a man wearing a hooded black sweatshirt and a stocking mask approached them at 9:20 p.m. and pulled out a handgun, according to a statement on the university’s website.
The man demanded their cell phones, but the two women turned and fled the scene, the university said. The suspect then fled to the north side of campus through an underpass.
Williams was arrested about an hour later and the imitation handgun was recovered just before midnight. Williams appears to have been scrubbed from the Monmouth football website. ESPN and the Big South media guide lists him as 6’7″, 270.
