BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. —

A Florida man faces multiple charges after he was accused of stalking and attacking a woman with whom he became obsessed on Instagram.

Boynton Beach police arrested Michael Maurice Williams, 25, early Thursday after alleging he entered a 20-year-old woman’s bedroom through a window in late November and battered both her and one of her younger relatives. A 10-year-old boy related to the woman rushed to her aid, using a knife to help fend off Williams, police said.

The woman told police investigators that she believed Williams had been watching her through her bedroom window at least once every two weeks over the past year.

She told investigators she was in that room at about 4 p.m. Tuesday when she noticed someone outside her window and began to scream. The woman ran to the living room and looked out the window but saw no one outside, according to police. When she returned her bedroom, Williams was waiting, police said. He allegedly pushed the woman onto the bed and attempted to remove some of her clothing.

She screamed as she fought him off, police said. Her 10-year-old relative entered the room with a knife and attempted to defend her. Williams pushed the boy’s head back to keep him at bay, police said.

The woman and her relative were able to push Williams out of the room and the residence as another young relative called 911. The man declined medical treatment.

The woman told investigators she did not know Williams, but that he began following her on the social media platform Instagram after she began a career in music. Williams was given a trespass warning at her home last December, according to an arrest report. He was accused at that time of breaking a lock to the same bedroom window through which he recently entered the home, according to authorities.

Williams faces charges of burglary with battery, false imprisonment and criminal mischief. A judge Thursday ordered that he be held without bail and have no contact with either the alleged victim or witnesses.
