Jermaine Williams

GREENVILLE CO.,  S.C. (FOX CAROLINA) Greenville County deputies announced Saturday morning that they have made a third arrest in connection to the assault of an elderly couple in September. 

Investigators arrested 38-year-old Jermaine Bernard Williams at 4 a.m. Saturday. 

Williams had been previously arrested on marijuana charges during the November 7 search warrants related to the W.E. Willis incident. 

Though there were no charges immediately associated with the robbery and kidnapping, new information found this morning led investigators to establish probable cause. 

Williams is being charged with the following: 

  • Burglary 1st degree
  • Assault and Battery 1st Degree
  • 2 counts of Kidnapping
  • Arson 3rd degree
  • Criminal Conspiracy
  • Grand Larceny over $10,000
  • 2 counts of Armed Robbery

Williams was denied bond Saturday afternoon. 

Deputies announced Thursday that two other men had been arrested in connection to the kidnapping. 

The investigation remains ongoing.
