PHOENIX — A former Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office detention officer has
pleaded not guilty to assaulting a woman with a souvenir baseball bat and
pointing a handgun at her.
County prosecutors said 30-year-old William Glen Edmond entered his plea at his
arraignment Monday on charges of felony sexual assault and felony aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon.
His next scheduled court date is Sept. 11.
The woman told police that Edmond used a wrestling hold to pin her to a
bed and then used a small wooden bat during the June 30 assault.
During an argument later, she accused Edmond of pointing a gun at her in front of her children.
Edmond was later arrested at his Avondale home.
Authorities said Edmond had worked five years with the sheriff’s office before
