On Sunday at 12:35 a.m., Monterey police officers responded to the 300 block of Tyler Street in Monterey on a report of a robbery. Police said two victims had been walking in the area when a man approached them from behind and knocked them to the ground. The suspect took a purse from one of the victims and threatened to shoot them, police said.
The suspect then fled and drove away in a vehicle with a woman in the front passenger seat. At 4:48 a.m., Seaside police officers were dispatched to the Walgreens at 1055 Fremont Blvd. in Seaside on a report of an armed robbery. Police said the suspect entered the store, approached the teller at a cash register, pulled a black firearm and demanded money. The suspect then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.
On Wednesday, police identified Williams as the suspect in both robberies. Police said a search of Williams’ home revealed evidence from both robberies including a black paintball gun.
