“I don’t want the community to believe we had someone breaking into a home and raping someone. This is someone who was invited into the home,” Williams said.

The man, however, brought two friends with him when he arrived at the home, Williams said

The victim told police that once inside the home Anderson and Duncan raped her, Williams said. The woman reported the rape at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday and was taken to River Region Medical Center where she was treated and released, Williams said.

A third man, Shaquille Williams, 19, who gave the same address as Anderson, forced his way back into the home after the rape and removed property from the home, said Lt. Williams, who is not related to Shaquille Williams.

Shaquille Williams was arrested Tuesday in Claiborne County and brought to Vicksburg to face burglary charges, she said in a press release this morning.

All three men were held without bail this morning in the Issaquena County Correctional Facility awaiting an initial appearance in Vicksburg Municipal Court.

Three charged in meth case

Three Warren County residents accused of having a half ounce of methamphetamine were held without bail this morning.

At about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Kiley Goulette, 22, who lives on Goodrum Road, Rachel Clark, 34, who lives on Highland Drive, and Benjamin Brewer, 32, who lives on Freetown Road, were arrested by deputies Wesley Miller, Chris Williams and Sgt. Mike Marshall and charged with possession of a controlled substance, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

The three are accused of having the half ounce of meth in a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado on South Frontage Road, Pace said. A .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun and a sawed off shotgun were also seized during the arrest, he said.

Goulette and Clark were held without bail this morning in the Warern County Jail awaiting an initial appearance in Warren County Justice Court.

Brewer, who was indicted in January for possession of a controlled substance but did not show up for court, was being held without bail awaiting arraignment in that case. After arraignment, Brewer will appear in Warren County Justice Court on the new charge, Pace said.
