Women spar with sword and machete


By J. Eric Eckard


A spat between two children turned into a neighborhood duel, police said.

Rocky Mount police accused two women of attacking each other Wednesday morning at a school bus stop one armed with a sword and the other with a machete.

"They were swinging the sword and the machete at each other," said Rocky Mount police Sgt. Gerald Pipkin.

Both women Latecia Damita Anderson and Yolanda Nicole Braswell were charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Anderson, 29, of the 700 block of Ravenwood Drive and Braswell, 19, of the 600 block of Ravenwood Drive were released from custody under $1,000 bonds apiece.

The battle stemmed from a previous incident, in which Braswell's younger brother apparently struck Anderson's child in the eye with a rubber band on Tuesday either at their school or on the bus, Pipkin said. Shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday in front of Braswell's house, Anderson was on her child's bus when Braswell approached the bus armed with a machete, police charge.

"Anderson got off the bus, and a nearby person gave her a sword," said Pipkin, adding that it wasn't clear who gave Anderson the sword.

The two alleged combatants squared off, swinging their weapons at each other until officers arrived at the scene, police charge. Neither woman was hurt.

A third suspect also was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Marvin Rushard Braswell, 18, who lives at the same address as Yolanda Braswell, was accused of "hollering, shouting and encouraging the fight," police charge. He was released under a $500 bond. It's not known how the two were related.

:lolup: That's just what I was thinking when I read that. "Hmmm , I better bring ol' excaliber to the school bus stop in case some one has a machette" And then try telling the youngsters not to shoot rubber bands at each other after they see that kind of behaviour from the adults!! Yeow :dunno: :dunno:

Ol'excaliber :rofl: Grendeljaeger

What the hell ever happened to switchblades and straight razors! I guess fencing has replaced basketball as the sport of choice in the hood. I must be getting old.

Thanks for the laugh Custer. I needed it.
