YOUNGSTOWN - Two women were arrested Monday afternoon after a fight on the South Side in which one woman was pepper-sprayed and another was hit in the face with a hammer.
Awaiting arraignment in Municipal Court are Sjameka Dubose, 24, of Brentwood Avenue and Tomasina May, 37, of Clay Street. Both were taken to Mahoning County Jail.
Police were called about 3:15 p.m. to 541 E. Boston Ave., where Unique Collins told them she and May had fought in her front yard and May left in an orange SUV.
Collins went inside with three children, ages 2, 5 and 7, and then May returned with Dubose and a man and they forced their way inside the home, she told police.
Collins told police the man threatened her with a large, semiautomatic handgun. Then May sprayed pepper spray in the face of Collins and two women who were with her and stomped on the head of one of those women before leaving, the report states.
Police were called to Northside Medical Center a short time later, where May was trying to get treatment for wounds she said she suffered when she was hit in the face with a hammer. She was holding a hammer when police got there and she was told to drop it, which she did, the report states.
Police saw the SUV in the parking lot and ran the plate, which matched the plate of the SUV that was supposed to be at Collins' home. Dubose was inside and she was arrested as well, police said.
Both are charged with aggravated burglary.
