The Carson City Sheriff’s Office, in coordination with the Carson City District Attorney, is releasing the photograph of Kahlil Deshaun Williams, 24. Williams remains in the Carson City Detention Facility on the charges of Kidnapping, Attempted Sexual Assault of a Minor Under 14, Lewdness With a Minor Under 14, and False Imprisonment. His bail is $250,000.
Williams was taken into custody on May 4th, based on detailed information provided by the victim of an alleged abduction that took place earlier in the day. At the time Williams was taken into custody, Detectives, in concurrence with the District Attorney, believed, that the release of his photograph could have unduly hampered the investigation, and therefore delayed the release of his photograph until this date.
Williams has an extensive residency in the California Bay Area, and he is known to have lived in or frequented the Reno, Sparks, Carson City areas for several years. He has family who reside in Carson City and he may have been in the Carson community for a limited time before the alleged abduction took place near his family’s residence. He has an extensive arrest history, including acts of Domestic Violence and Fugitive From Justice.
It has been alleged that Williams was in the area of his family’s residence on Hot Springs Road when he abducted a minor under the age of 14 and took her to a location where he attempted to sexually assault her. The minor was later released and reported the incident to her family who in turn contacted authorities. Detectives worked throughout the day confirming the information that was disclosed and by late afternoon were able to provide a public safety press information release. Within minutes of the release, the Sheriff’s Office received information that a person matching the description provided was in Mills Park near the skate park frequented by juveniles. Contact was made with Williams and Detectives were able to confirm sufficient information that provided them with probable cause to arrest Williams.
Anyone with information associated with the arrest of Kahlil Williams is asked to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 887-COPS (2677).
