CHARLESTON, S.C. (TCD) -- Two women are facing felony charges after they allegedly got into an altercation with a 17-year-old and attacked her with a bayonet.
According to WCSC-TV, on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at approximately 8:30 p.m., Charleston Police Department officers were called to a residence on Justin Avenue regarding a woman with a knife. When officers arrived, they reportedly found 24-year-old Terrene McGee on the ground with blood on her face and an old bayonet next to her.
The arrest report cited by WCIV-TV alleges McGee and 24-year-old Mikalah Scott went to the residence on Justin Drive because they wanted to speak with a 27-year-old man who has three kids with McGee and one with Scott. The children were with them when they went to the house.
The women reportedly learned two female teens, ages 17 and 19, and a 21-year-old man were also at the home.
McGee and Scott allegedly went into the man’s house via a side window and started fighting with the people inside. During the altercation, McGee allegedly began hitting the 17-year-old. Scott reportedly picked up the bayonet and used that to strike the teen. The 19-year-old contacted police when she saw what was happening.
WCIV reports Scott and McGee drove off when the 19-year-old called 911, but they returned.
According to WCSC, McGee and the 17-year-old, who sustained blunt force trauma-related injuries, were taken to the hospital.
WCSC reports Scott and McGee are being charged with first-degree assault and battery and first-degree burglary.
