Man accused of sexually battering woman turns himself in


UPDATE: Volusia County deputies say the man accused of sexually battering a woman turned himself in Saturday night.


Volusia County deputies said they arrested one person and are looking for another in connection to a sexual battery that happened at an apartment complex in Deland a week ago. Deputies arrested 18-year-old Daria Hill. She’s charged with one count of sexual battery and one count of false imprisonment. She faced a judge Saturday morning. The judge set a bond of $150,000.

Deputies are looking for 18-year-old Terrell Williamson, who they said forced a woman to have sex with him three times. Deputies in one occasion he held her at gun point. He’s charged with several counts of sexual battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and false imprisonment.

The victim told deputies that Hill was the one that held her down during one of the attacks. Deputies said Williamson forced the victim to have sex with him three different times between January 1 and January 5.

Volusia County Sheriff Deputies stated Hill and her boyfriend Williamson held the woman against her will and sexually battered her several times in one week. During the first incident, the victim said Williamson pointed a gun at her head, demanded she take off all her clothes, and then sexually battered her.  During the second incident, the victim said Williamson put a pillow over her face for about 5 minutes while battering her. Deputies say this went on at Hill's Deland apartment. 

Deputies said after their last encounter, while leaving the apartment Williamson told the victim, "he would kill her mother and brother if she said anything." The victim said Hill was present during all three attacks.

FOX35 News spoke exclusively to Williamson’s aunt and told us he is innocent.

“If you got raped from the first to the 5th why would you leave here and go to work and come back to the same place you got raped? It doesn’t make sense,” said Williamson’s Aunt Naketria Dunn. "I feel like it's messed up but it's alright, justice will be served."

Hill's mother was also in court and defended her daughter.

”I was just trying to find out about her charges,” Hill’s mother Tanisha Hill told the judge Saturday morning. “Whatever they have her charged it's not the truth."

Deputies are asking anyone with information about Williamson’s whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at 888-288-TIPS.
