Two officers responded to the Lisa Robyn Circle home around 7:10 pm on a call for a man and woman being involved in a verbal altercation.

When they got there, they didn't find anyone in need of assistance, but then 50-year old Kadiatu Sesay ran them down and told them she and a friend were talking in her living room when her 25-year old son, Stanley Williams, came downstairs and began acting erratically.

Officers went back to the home with backup, went to Stanley's bedroom door which he opened and the began attacking two of the officers with a knife to their face and head and kept going after them into the stairway, police said.

The officers then left the home until backup arrived and get treatment for their injuries.

As backup arrived, so did the Lakewood Police Department Special Response Team and Crisis Negotiator who was able to speak with Stanely to try and convince him to surrender, to no avail.

It was around 2:30 am Sunday at this point.

The Lakewood SRT, along with assistance from the Ocean County SWAT, then entered the home and saw Stanley on the staircase, "armed with what appeared to be a handgun."

Stanley then went back to his room, police said, and as officers tried again to ask him to surrender, he ignored them.

Tactical teams were then set up and rounds of pepper spray went into Stanley's bedroom.

Then Stanley left his room, unarmed and was arrested on the spot without further incident.

Officers then found an "approximately 12" smooth edge knife" which is what Stanley allegedly used to strike the two responding officers and they found the firearm he had which turned out to be a realistic looking pellet gun.
Stanley Williams is being charged with Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer, and the Attempted Murder of two Police Officers.

"The Lakewood Police Department would like to thank the Lakewood Emergency Medical Services, the staff at Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, the Ocean County Prosecutors Office, the Ocean County Sheriff's Office, and the members of Chaverim who volunteered their time last evening."
