Sources say Williams, 24, met two the two suspected women while out with his friends at the Up & Down nightclub on 14th Street near Eighth Avenue. The women went back to Williams’ apartment later that night, sources say. Williams’ roommate was also with them, sources said.
When Williams and his roommate woke up at around 7 a.m. Sunday, the women had disappeared, along with a Louis Vuitton backpack and an estimated $617,000 in jewelry, sources said.
