A 46-year-old St. Petersburg man was arrested Tuesday, nearly two weeks after police said he was caught naked in the bed of a 12-year-old girl.

Edward Raynard Williams, of 601 40th St. S., faces a charge of lewd and lascivious battery. About 1:15 a.m. Aug. 7, a woman walked into her granddaughter’s bedroom and discovered Williams naked under the bed covers, police said. When the grandmother pulled back the covers, Williams jumped through a window and ran off, police said.

Investigators said they believe Williams, a family acquaintaince, called the 12-year-old on the phone and arranged for her to let him inside through a bedroom window.

Williams, who was taken into custody at his home, was cooperative but made no statement to investigators, according to a news release from police.

He was booked at the Pinellas County Jail, with bail set at $20,000, according to the jail website.
