Police said the victim had been choked, then hit in the head and pushed against a glass window, causing the glass to break.

Williams was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Annie Gomez Shockey, who set his bail at $100,000. An unsecured bail requirement usually means the defendant is released without having to put up cash or security.

A records department officer at Franklin County Jail said there was no record of Williams being at the jail this month.
