3 charged as woman hit with tire tool, baseball bat

Friday, July 19, 2013

Three people were charged with aggravated assault following a fracas Wednesday afternoon at a Railroad Avenue home.

Police said Alja Lashaun Williams, 24, of Columbia drove by the home yelling at a man inside that he "had something for him." Williams returned several minutes later and struck a woman several times with a baseball bat before the intended victim, a man, took the bat away.

Brandy Lynn Lee, 34, of Barksdale Lane attempted to strike the woman in the head with a tire tool before another man took it out of her hands. Justin Ray Lee, 30, of Barksdale Lane went after the woman with another tire tool before a third man, her boyfriend, grabbed it -- but not before receiving a bloody nose.

One of the men tried to grab Williams' keys as he left but got only a house key that came off the key ring. Williams "threw what appeared to be battery acid out the window of his truck, attempting to get anyone who was in the crowd," officer Bobby Peacock's report said.

The injured woman was treated at Heritage Medical Center for "impact bruises," police said.

The Lees were each charged with aggravated assault and posted $15,000 bond. An additional charge of failure to appear was added to Williams' list; he posted $16,000 bond.
