On the 5th day of April 2018 at approximately 2200hrs, I responded to 12193 SE 50th Drive in reference to a harassment call . Upon my arrival, contact was made with the complainant, Jennifer Hightower. Mrs. Hightower gave me a verbal and written statement that she was being threatened by Charles Williams at her place of employment.
On 04/04/18 at approximately 1000, she entered his office to discuss the preparations for the upcoming council meeting. As she sat down , he shut the door. Hightower advised that Williams had never shut the door before in a meeting with her and that this made her very uneasy. Williams began questioning her on why Margie Geddes spent so much time in her office and for what she was searching for. Mr. Williams then stated that he was adding a request for a two year employment contract to the agenda for the meeting on 04/19/18 . He continued to say that if I don’t get what I want I will take you down. At this time, he shifted his body, whereupon she saw that he had a gun on his side. The flap on the case was open. Hightower asked what does that mean? Williams replied you will see. Hightower was very upset after becoming aware Williams had a gun .
After exiting Williams office, she was shaking , visibly distraught and her face noticeably red. Several co-workers asked if she was ok. Hightower replied no, Charles just threatened me.
On 04/05/18 @5:15, in the witness of Margie Geddes, Mr. Williams was verbally aggressive and yelling at Hightower with his hand on his gun case and stated he would get the council to deal with you. Hightower states that several others heard his tone down the hall in the back offices.
Hightower states that Williams has created a hostile work environment and that it is a threat by displaying his gun as a threat to possible consequences. She is afraid of Will iam s, that he has created a work place of fear. That she is afraid to report to work and perform her job without endangering herself.
Hightower said she reported this to the Mayor and was advised to get a report done. Hightower was very distraught during the course of investigation.
Hightower advised she is worried about her safety.
Hightower was advised to take this matter to her boss. Hightower said she would but she wanted a report taken. Statements may be included in this report.
This report to be forward to my Administration for further investigation and/or actions.
