A Northwest Arkansas man is in jail facing a rape charge after a woman told police he sexually assaulted her in a Springdale hotel room Wednesday night.

Alfonzo Williams, 29, was booked in the Washington County Detention Center on Saturday morning and has a bond amount of $25,000, according to the Sheriff’s Office website. Williams has a August 9 court date for the rape charge and has several holds on him requested by other agencies because of active warrants, the website said.

Williams is listed with a Fayetteville address on the booking website, while the probable cause police report lists him with a Pea Ridge address.

A preliminary police report said Springdale police responded to a rape complaint at the Value Place Hotel on the 4300 block of Dixie Industrial Avenue on Wednesday night. The first officer on the scene found a woman, 37, nude on a bed while her boyfriend consoled her, the report said.

The woman was transported to Northwest Arkansas Medical Center, the report said. The hotel security manager and the woman’s boyfriend told officers the woman had called the boyfriend to tell him she was in distress in a hotel room, the report said.

When the security manager and boyfriend went to the room the woman and Williams were in, Williams told the men that the woman was drunk but he had not done anything, the report said. When the security manager said he was calling police, Williams took a camera and two computers and left, the report said.

The woman told her boyfriend Williams had raped her, the report said.

When officers contacted the woman at the hospital, she told police she had gone to the hotel room to meet Williams about a job interview, the report said. The woman told officers she had some drinks with Williams, passed out and woke up with Williams “inside of her,” the report said.

The woman told officers she told Williams “No” and pushed him off of her before calling her boyfriend, the report said. She told officers at no time did she consent to having sex with Williams, the report said.
