A Washington, D.C., man who attempted to violently rape a woman in front of people is heading to prison for 13 years.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Columbia announced that Akiem Angelo Williams, 38, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced to 84 months in prison on convictions of kidnapping and first-degree burglary and 72 months for a conviction on assault with the intent to commit first-degree sexual abuse.
He was also ordered 10 years of supervised release after the sentencing, which will run concurrently.
On Oct. 17, 2022, Williams was found guilty of the charges that stem from a Sept. 6, 2020, incident.
According to court documents, a little before 2 p.m. on Sept. 6, 2020, Williams followed a woman out of the Georgia Avenue Metro station and chased her down the block into a lobby of an apartment building as she screamed for help.
There, according to documents, Williams cornered the victim, physically assaulted her and attempted to rape her in front of three people.
When one witness yelled that he had called police, Williams fled while leaving the victim curled in a corner bleeding from the head. Afterward, Williams assaulted a Metro and then exposed himself.
Another victim reported seeing Williams expose himself on a Metro train hours later, and he was identified through video surveillance there.
