Two Chicago Heights women were arrested after one was accused of brutally attacking her neighbor, according to police.
Dasheena Williams, 30, of the 1300 block of Washington Street, was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and assault, after she and nine other women showed up in the yard of woman Williams allegedly battered earlier that day, according to the report.
The initial fight with Williams left the victim with injuries to her face and hand, requiring stitches in her chin, finger and lower lip, according to the report. Williams returned and taunted the woman, stating, "I cut you last night. Come off that porch so I can beat your (expletive) again," according to the report.
As the police were taking Williams into custody, the group of women yelled at the officers and refused to back away. One of the women, Shauntell Triplet, pushed an officer in the chest and struck the officer in the face with an open hand, police said. As police attempted to restrain Triplet, she struck the officer again in the face, this time with a closed fist, according to the report.
Triplet, 26, of the 600 block of Andover Street, was arrested and charged with battery and resisting arrest, polcie said.
Williams and Triplett are scheduled to appear in court Dec. 6.
