According to court documents, on June 2 of this year, two men robbed a woman in her apartment, getting away with some cash.

One of the men was unknown to the woman but she stated that the other was 25-year-old Phillip Anthony Williams of Lafayette.

Police later discovered Williams in the Tippecanoe County Jail on an unrelated charge and asked him about the robbery but Williams was uncooperative at the time.

Two months later, police were contacted by Williams who then stated that he wanted to admit to his involvement in the robbery case.

Williams has been charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery, armed robbery, and theft.

Due to his criminal history, Williams has also been charged with being a habitual offender.

Some of his past convictions include one for the offense of auto theft in 2010, another for trespass on school grounds that same year, and another for strangulation in 2012.
