A 23-year-old man was charged with kidnapping, robbing, and carjacking a woman last week. The victim told police, a man who appeared to have a gun, took her wallet and phone and forced her to drive to an ATM. That man was later identified as Marcus Williamson.
The former Ohio State defensive back has been charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of aggravated kidnapping, and one count of tampering with or fabricating evidence.
She was told to withdraw $500 from the ATM. Shortly after she did that, Williamson kicked her out of her own vehicle and drove off. He would take the car to a car wash and began emptying out the victim’s belongings, police said.
Williamson is being held on an $80,000 bond.
Williamson exited the vehicle and was seen throwing away items into a trash can before officers arrested him, the affidavit says. Officers pulled the items out of the trash can and confirmed they belonged to the victim.
Williamson played for the Buckeyes from 2017-2021. He had 65 total tackles, four pass deflections and two forced fumbles.
His next court date is scheduled for Sept. 7 at 9 a.m., according to court records.
