NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A North Charleston woman was arrested Tuesday after police were called to a Florida Avenue location about an assault.

According to a report, police arrested Kendra Thomas, 44, after she allegedly hit another woman with an object described as a “wire oven grate.”

The victim was sitting outside in a chair when Thomas hit her in the face, causing her to fall to the ground as she was repeatedly assaulted.

Thomas then continued to berate the victim before having a beer bottle thrown at her in retaliation.

Police noticed swelling and a small laceration on the victim’s face; she was taken to the ER by her daughter.

Thomas also suffered injuries to her face and arms, police said. She is charged with second-degree assault and battery.
