Woman Cut On The Head
An argument between two women escalated into a physical confrontation Thursday night, ending with one of them being cut on the head and the other going to jail.
Sharise Lewis, 19, was charged with burglary with assault or battery.
The incident occurred just before 7 p.m. at Pensacola Village on East Fairfield Drive. Pensacola Police Officer Coy McKenna said Lewis and Shavonyul James, 22, also of Pensacola Village, got into an argument on the front porch of James’ apartment. The two women ended up inside James’ apartment where they continued fighting.
James told police she told Lewis multiple times to leave her apartment, but she didn’t and
began hitting her. James said she feared for her safety and the safety of her children so she began defending herself. As a result, she grabbed a knife and cut Lewis on the head.
Police were told the incident occurred after James’ 3-year-old son and Lewis’ son, who is approximately the same age, had been playing earlier. James’ son hit Lewis’ son, and Lewis became angry.
Lewis was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
