San Rafael PD Detectives Arrest Trio Involved in Recent Violent Robberies
SAN RAFAEL – According to a Press Release issued by the San Rafael Police Department (SRPD), an officer on patrol in the vicinity of Albert Park responded to yelling that he heard coming from an area near the tennis courts, just before 1 am on Tuesday, April 21. Officer Ryan DeMarta found a twenty-two year old woman suffering from multiple lacerations to her head.
The woman told Officer DeMarta that she had been stabbed in the head with a knife, but was vague in providing further details about what had happened. The woman was transported to the hospital and was treated for her injuries, and later released.
SRPD Detectives were called in to assist in the investigation. Additional information provided by the victim revealed that a man and two women had approached her and demanded that she give them all of her property. When she refused, all three assaulted her. During the attack one of the suspects produced a knife and stabbed her in the head. The three suspects then took her property and fled the area.
A thorough investigation by SRPD, including a search for evidence and for the suspects themselves resulted in their apprehension and arrest. The suspects have been identified as Indugo Asifa Williams, a 37-year-old man and local transient. The women have been identified as 22-year-old Angelica Funes and 18-year-old Daisy Rodriguez, who live at the same apartments in San Rafael. Bail information is unavailable at this time.
All three suspects were booked at the Marin County Jail for Robbery, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and for Conspiracy to Commit a Crime. SRPD Detectives also determined in the course of the investigation that the same three suspects have been involved in at least two other incidents similar in nature in the City of San Rafael within the last month.
Indugo Williams has a long history with the law, and is a registered sex offender. According to the Megan’s Law Website, his original offense was pc 647.6, annoying or molesting a child under 18. Other available records show many arrests going back to 2006, when he was charged with driving under the influence and without a license, and resisting arrest. After a drug possession arrest in 2007, he was also charged with battery on a spouse, former spouse, or co-habitant (domestic violence.) In 2008 and 2009 he was arrested for sales, possession and transportation of marijuana and other controlled substances.
Then in July of 2011 he was charged with attacking a woman and forcing his way into her motel room in San Rafael. According to a story from fugitive.com, he reportedly raped her, and then fell asleep in her room. She escaped and ran for help. He was charged with forcible rape, assault with intent to commit rape, oral copulation and sodomy by force, and burglary.
He was charged in October 2011 with a parole violation, and then arrested in December for DUI, driving at over 100 mph and with a suspended license. A few months later, in April 2012 he was again charged with driving on a suspended license, but this time in a stolen vehicle. He had also failed to register his location as a sex offender. He was charged with two more parole violations and one possession of stolen property in 2012, and then with robbery, attempted kidnapping, possession of burglary tools, conspiracy, and battery on a peace officer in January of 2013.
It is not clear if his latest young accomplices were aware of his extensive history, and the violent nature of some of his crimes. If convicted of this latest series of offenses, one might expect he will face a much longer sentence than before.
