GOLDSBORO, N.C. – A Goldsboro man wanted in a July stabbing at an apartment complex was arrested Monday after police said he exposed himself to a man at a downtown Raleigh hotel.

Byran Marquail Williams initially gave police a false name when he was taken into custody, but investigators later determined his identity.

According to Goldsboro police, Williams is charged with indecent exposure and second-degree trespassing in connection with the incident at Raleigh Marriott City Center, at 500 Fayetteville St.

He is also charged with first-degree burglary, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill and assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present.

Goldsboro police said officers responded July 2 to a 911 call from an apartment on Slaughter Street and found a man lying in bed with a stab would. The female tenant told investigators that three men entered her locked apartment before dawn and robbed and stabbed the man.

Williams is an ex-boyfriend of the woman, according to police.

He was held at the Wake County Detention Center on a $750,000 secured bond and was scheduled for a first court appearance Thursday.

    Gay trolling. I guess you could take issue with 678devilish if you object to homosexuals as being referred to as mentally sick and in need of help.

    I know, I know - the article said nothing about the culprit being gay. But this is how gays pick up prospects. It's how the old Congressman was caught in an airport bathroom exposing himself. It's a quick check to see if there is any interest. He should have left before the cops got there, but maybe he was desperate.

    A "fine" specimen of an American. I'm sure his parents are right proud of him.

    But it does sound like he is going to be a registered sex offender at some point.

    Somehow I don't think he was a registered guest.
