Aggravated Assault Charges in Connection to Teen Beating
WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) Police arrest several people they believe bullied and even beat up a 17-year-old girl. Most of those arrested are over the age of 18.
Two of the beatings were caught on camera and broadcast to people in the community.
Anqulisha Evans, 18, and Shavonna Evans, 21, were arrested saturday. Sharon Evans, 28, was arrested Monday in connection to the beating of Chelisa Robinson. All 3 are charged with aggravated assault and are currently out on bond.
The first beating happened September 16th as Robinson arrived at work. Robinson says the suspect waited an hour for her to get in, then began punching her and dragging her on the ground. By the time she went to school the next day, the video went viral.
On Thursday, September 20th, the teen says she came home to a crowd of people outside her house. Four women then began beating, punching and kicking her. That video was also caught on camera. In both incidents Chelisa Robinson and her family say people just watched and did nothing to stop the bullying.
West Point police say they expect to make more arrest in the investigation.
