Two teenage girls have been charged with aggravated assault and other offenses after allegedly attacking two people.
Alliyah Stephens-Brodie, 19, and Nadia Young, 19, were both arrested Tuesday by the Douglasville Police Department after authorities say the two people were assaulted at an apartment on West Stewart Mill Road.
Young and Marlon Wells, 20, have a child together and are still married although they don't live together. Police say Young called Wells multiple times asking him to buy her some diapers and wipes. When Wells arrived at the apartment to drop the supplies off, no one was there, so he left the baby products on the balcony of Young's apartment, according to Capt. Brad Stafford.
Stafford said while Wells was trying to leave, a 2016 blue Dodge Dart SXT blocked him in from behind. Young and her friend Stephens-Brodie then got out of the dodge with a metal pipe and began to beat Wells' 2001 silver Chevrolet Impala, Stafford said. Young tried to break Wells' window and hit his car's roof over the driver position. After damaging the car, Young then dragged Wells' passenger, 19-year-old Chaneece Wright, out of the car and began assaulting her with a kitchen knife, Stafford said.
Wright and Wells left the scene and were on their way to receive medical attention, but pulled over near the intersection of Chapel Hill Road and Brookmount Parkway, according to Stafford. Once a deputy from the sheriff's office noticed the battered vehicle, he checked on the two passengers. After discovering Wright's and Wells' scars, the deputy discovered the incident occurred in the city, so he called for an officer from the Douglasville Police Department to investigate. Douglas County EMS had already transported Wright to the Tanner Medical Center in Villa Rica by the time DPD arrived. The officer from DPD noticed that Wells' Impala had a nickel-sized hole in his right rear tire, according to the police report.
Stephens-Brodie was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, two counts of battery, and criminal trespassing. Young was charged with Aggravated Assault under the Family Violence Act, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, two counts of battery under the Family Violence Act, battery, and criminal trespassing under the Family Violence Act, jail records show.
"Anytime you're assaulted with a weapon, that becomes an Aggravated Assault," Stafford said.
Young and Stephens-Brodie appeared in Magistrate Court on Thursday and both were denied bond.
