Woman’s breast bitten during assault
Police charged a 23-year-old Myrtle Beach woman with assaulting another woman who she said attacked her.
Hakina Tinakwa Alston, 23, is charged with second-degree assault and battery. She was charged after she went to the police department Monday night to report the incident, police said.
An arrest report showed that police went to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center and spoke to the victim, who suffered multiple cuts to her face, neck, chest and arms from an unknown sharp object. The victim identified Alston as her attacker.
Alston told police she was at her sister’s house at Sandy Gate Village Apartments about 11 p.m. Monday when the victim drove into the neighborhood and jumped out of the car and “bum rushed” her, according to the incident report. Alston told police that the victim didn’t say anything, but attacked her.
The victim was on top of Alston and Alston she bit the woman on her breast during the incident, police said. Alston said her sister pulled her from under the victim and took her into the house.
Alston said she went home and her mother told her to report the incident. The women have had an ongoing feud that stemmed from an incident that occurred more than a year ago, police wrote in the report, but did not describe the circumstances of the feud.
Alston suffered a cut on her hand and police noted they did not speak to the victim or any witnesses at the time of the report.
