A police report obtained by CNN indicates that the unnamed woman could be seen during the assault on a Facebook Live video pleading for her attacker to stop.

"In the video you can clearly hear the female saying, 'stop, please somebody help me,' " the report states.

Williams's attorney released a statement proclaiming his innocence on Instagram, while calling for other bystanders or witnesses to come forward.

"These allegations are false, and the evidence will prove that our client should never have been charged," Shequel Ross wrote in the post.

"Our client and his innocent family members have endured harassment as a result of this rush to judgement without reviewing facts," she added.

The nightclub's attorney told CNN that the business would "continue to provide Atlanta Police Department with any information and footage which may help the investigation."
