Woman Attacks Her Baby Daddy
A Hephzibah woman's been arrested for attacking her child's father with a mop handle and then stabbing him in both arms, according to a sheriff's report.
Lasharra Dean, 33, of Teakwood Drive, was charged last week with one count each of battery, simple battery and cruelty to children.
According to a report, the suspect came home Feb. 12 and got into a fight with her child's father because she didn't call him while she was out. The victim, 36-year-old Eulester Fleming, got angry and grabbed Ms. Dean's telephone before locking himself in their bedroom.
Ms. Dean became enraged and kicked in the door and struck Mr. Fleming in the face. She then retrieved a mop handle and struck him with that. Finally, the woman got a steak knife and stabbed the victim once in each arm. The victim was able to jump over the bed and run out of the house, a report states.
A responding deputy observed a blood trail going out of the house and the broken bedroom door. Mr. Fleming was transported to University Hospital for stitches to the cuts while Ms. Dean was arrested.
Because the fight and stabbing took place in front of the suspect's 12-year-old daughter and 16-year-old daughter, Ms. Dean was charged with child cruelty.
