Details emerge on employee charged with battery in BI-LO incident
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A report from a sheriff’s deputy sheds new light on the case of a woman who’s been charged with battery at a local grocery store.
According to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, Yetevia Williams assaulted two people at a BI-LO store where Williams apparently was working.
The deputy wrote in the report that at 3:49 p.m. Sunday, he responded to the store at 2803 Wrightsboro Road regarding an assault.
Upon arrival, he contacted the manager, who stated that an apparent co-worker at the store was walking to the front of the store to assist Williams. She stated that Williams saw the co-worker and stated that she would not work with her, according to the deputy.
The manager said Williams then walked over to the time clock and began clocking out. The manager stated that the co-worker made a comment about she didn’t know what the problem was when Williams approached her and began striking her in the face with a closed fist, knocking her to the ground and continuing to strike her.
The manager stated that she and customers pulled Williams off the victim and tried to escorted her out of the store.
During this time, a woman stated that someone needed to call the police, at which time Williams came up behind her and grabbed her by the back of the hair and pushed her to the ground, the deputy wrote.
Williams then proceeded to strike the woman several times in the back of the head with a closed fist, the deputy wrote.
The manager and customers then pulled Williams off the woman and escorted her outside, the deputy wrote.
Williams then got into a small black hatchback and fled the scene, according to the deputy.
The deputy wrote that the co-worker had “large red marks all around her face and a scratch mark on her forehead and also swollen upper lip.” The other victim had “a large knot” on the back of her head along with redness in that same area, the deputy wrote.
