The criminal cases against a handful of women who are accused of beating another woman who complained about a loud party are winding through Trumbull County Eastern District Court.
Three women have entered pleas, one case is pending, one case was dismissed, and two women are wanted on warrants.
Brookfield police said they were called at 12:50 a.m. July 9 to a noise complaint with about 50 people fighting on Nellie Street in Masury. Police said they arrived and saw multiple people kicking someone who was on the ground. The victim, a 21-year-old Burghill woman, sought treatment for what police believe were minor injuries, police said.
The victim was in an apartment with a friend and a girl watching a movie, but the loud music and stomping coming from the party in an apartment occupied by Alexandria L. Rand, 20, of 550 Nellie St., was making the girl cry, police said.
After the victim complained about the noise, she went outside and was followed by Rand; Jasmyn Y. Russell, 21, of Farrell; and another woman, police said. The women said they were going to beat up the victim because she had threatened to call the police. While the victim was calling 911, the third woman poked her in the face, and then Rand and Russell hit and kicked the victim, causing her to fall down, police said. Others joined in the assault, police said.
During the assault, the victim’s purse opened and spilled its contents, and Zaya Phillips, 21, of Sharon stole $266 of the victim’s cash, police said.
Rand has pleaded guilty or no contest to assault and aggravated menacing and was sentenced to 3 days in jail, but can perform 30 hours’ community service instead of jail; a $150 fine; and 1 year of probation.
Russell pleaded guilty to attempted assault. She was sentenced to 5 days in jail, but can perform 30 hours of community service instead of jail; a $100 fine; and 1 year of probation.
Allante C. Daniels, 20, of Farrell, pleaded guilty or no contest to disorderly conduct. She was fined $295.
Phillips and Qytirah L. Clarke, 24, of Sharon, are wanted to face charges of assault and theft.
Prosecutors withdrew charges filed against Ky’Azia M. Lee, 20, of Farrell, after a prosecutor said video showed that she ran from the fight. Lee stipulated there was probable cause for her arrest, and she was assessed costs.
Police later filed charges of assault and complicity to commit theft against Naudia Davis, 19, of 550 Nellie. She has pleaded not guilty and her next hearing is March 4.
