Upstate Man Arrested Tuesday on Multiple Charges, Including Armed Robbery

Emmanuel Onious Williams

(Walhalla, SC)-------------------------------------An Upstate man remains in jail today after his arrest Tuesday on multiple outstanding warrants, which include a charge of Armed Robbery.


20 year old Emmanuel Onious Williams, of Anderson and Seneca, was denied bond on all his charges.  Williams will appear before a Circuit Court Judge, at a later time, regarding his bond.  Williams was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center at around 5:24pm yesterday. 


Williams was arrested by agents of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. Custody of Williams was transferred to the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office at a location in Pendleton.  At the Detention Center, Williams was also served outstanding arrest warrants on charges of Public Disorderly Conduct, Petit Larceny, Driving under Suspension and Grand Larceny.


The charges against Williams stem from an investigation that began April 23rd at a business address on W. Cherry Road near Seneca.  On that date, Deputies from the Uniform Patrol Bureau responded due to reports of a disturbance involving an armed subject inside of the business.


When Deputies arrived to begin their investigation, they spoke with the victim, an adult female.  The victim told Deputies that she was driving Williams to his residence in Anderson when Williams became angry and began manipulating a handgun.


The victim pulled into a business parking lot, and after exiting the vehicle, went into the business.  According to the victim, Williams followed her into the business and took her purse.  Williams then retrieved the victim’s handgun, wallet and car keys from the purse.  After giving the victim back her purse, Williams got in the victim’s car, a 2009 Toyota Camry, and drove away.


According to the arrest warrants obtained by the Sheriff’s Office, Williams committed the larceny of the victim’s car keys, wallet and gun, by use or threat of force, while armed with a handgun. 

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.  The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank our law enforcement partners with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division for their assistance in our investigation.
