Brookfield police have obtained arrest warrants for six Shenango Valley women who are accused of hitting and kicking a woman who complained of a loud party July 9 on Nellie Street in Masury.
Charged with assault were Allante C. Daniels, 20, of Farrell; Zaya Phillips, 20, of Sharon; Qytirah L. Clarke, 24, of Sharon; Ky’Azia M. Lee, 20, of Farrell; Jasmyn Y. Russell, 20, of Farrell; and Alexandria L. Rand, 20, of 550 Nellie St., Masury.
Phillips also was charged with theft, and the others with complicity to theft.
promoPolice said they were called at 12:50 a noise complaint with about 50 people fighting. Police said they arrived and saw multiple people kicking someone who was on the ground. The victim was Natalie M. Anspach, 21, of Burghill, who sought treatment for what police believe were minor injuries, police said.
Anspach was in an apartment with a friend and a girl watching a movie, but the loud music and stomping coming from the party in Rand’s apartment was making the girl cry, police said.
Loud parties are common in the apartment, and the music usually is turned down when the host is asked, police said.
After Anspach asked for the music to be turned down, two women she did not know approached her and said they were mad at her for requesting the volume be turned down, police said.
Anspach said she decided to go outside to get away from the women, but was followed to her car by Rand, Russell and another woman. The women said they were going to beat up Anspach because she had threatened to call the police. While Anspach was calling 911, the third woman poked her in the face, and then Rand and Russell hit and kicked Anspach, causing her to fall down, police said. Others joined in the assault, police said.
During the assault, Anspach’s purse opened and spilled its contents, and Phillips stole $266 in Anspach’s cash, police said.
Police said they interviewed Rand and Russell, who confirmed that Anspach had come to the door to complain about the noise, “but got into their face about it and caused the problem.” Russell admitted hitting Anspach, but claimed Anspach also attacked her, police said.
