Level 3 Sex Offender Suspected In Beacon Hill Assault Held On $1 Million Bail

BOSTON (CBS) – The man police say forced himself into a Beacon Hill apartment and sexually assaulted a woman is being held on $1 million cash bail.

His bail on an open assault and battery case was revoked by Judge Mark Hart Summerville.

According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, Summerville was not the same judge who when Williams was arraigned on that assault and battery charge on Sept. 4, declined to revoke his bail on an open charge of failure to register as a sex offender.

Boston Police arrested Anthony G. Williams, 45, of Boston Tuesday and charged him with receiving stolen property, rape, kidnapping and failing to register as a sex offender.

At 3:15 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10, police responded to a call for a sexual assault in the area of Joy and Myrtle streets.

Police say it was Williams who forced his way into the woman’s apartment, displayed a knife, robbed her and sexually assaulted her.

According to the State Sex Offender Registry, Williams was previously convicted of rape in 1998. He was released in 2009 but did not register as a sex offender.
