BAKER, LA (WAFB) -
Police said a man suspected of beating his ex-girlfriend and threatening to kill her has been taken into custody after being on the run for over a week.
The Baker Police Department said Charles Williams Jr., 34, faces several charges, including attempted murder. The incident happened on Feb. 25. He was arrested Tuesday.
Investigators said the victim told them Williams went to her apartment claiming he wanted to talk about their past relationship. She said during the conversation he got upset and pulled a gun. According to reports, the woman said when she tried to run away he hit her with the gun and beat her.
Police added she told them she fought Williams to try to get the gun away and it went off inside the complex. She stated he was going to kill her and himself until she begged for her life and one last chance to see their children. She told officers that's what gave her a chance to escape.
The woman ran to a nearby convenience store on Groom Road and called police. Chief Mike Knaps said officers found her at the store with "visible signs of injuries."
Williams was later caught by deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office. He was extradited back to Baker and has been booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on the following charges:
