A 24-year-old man suspected of a felony probation violation was arrested Wednesday morning after a standoff that brought a police SWAT team unit to an Albemarle Road apartment complex, police say.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police detectives say Fitzroy Williams was arrested after the standoff, which began about 7 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 5500 block of Albemarle Road. That is between Central Avenue and Sharon Amity Road.
Police say Williams also is a suspect in an assault with a deadly weapon on Sunday evening in north Charlotte.
When officers arrived, police say, Williams barricaded himself inside an apartment. Police evacuated neighbors as a precaution until Williams surrendered.
Investigators say they are asking the public’s help in finding another man wanted in connection with the Sunday evening assault. That man is identified as Christopher Williams, 22, and he is suspected of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, police say.
Anyone with information on Christopher Williams’ whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.
