The affidavit said Williams acknowledged in the messages to the friend that the woman “said no to having sexual intercourse with him, however, he ignored her and continued having sex with her,” the Sentinel reported.
The incident began when Williams, 19, initially refused to let her leave the apartment when she said she wanted to go pick up her friend, according to ESPN. It is not clear in the media reports whether the friend mentioned is the same person.The accuser, whose name is redacted from the warrant, said Williams followed her around and imprisoned her against her will. The warrant says that Williams began touching her, and she told him she did not want anything sexual to happen between them, ESPN reported.
According to the warrant, the accuser said Williams ignored her, pulled down her pants and raped her, fighting off her repeated attempts to stop him.
