Cops: Pregnant Woman Beaten In Weave Beef
Victim's sister sought return of hairpiece
JANUARY 20--Angered that her pregnant sister refused to return a weave, a Florida woman allegedly pummeled her sibling, according to cops who arrested the accused assailant on a felony battery charge.
Police allege that Aryanna Ieasha Reed, 25, battered her sister Tyteahni, 24, during a confrontation Saturday afternoon at the victim’s Jacksonville apartment.
As detailed in a police report, Tyteahni told investigators that Reed had called her to demand the return of the hairpiece, which Reed had given to her sister as a Christmas present. When Tyteahni refused to return the weave, Aryanna “came to the victim’s apartment and confronted her.”
Tyteahni again “refused to give it to her because she had it on her head and didn’t want to go to work without it on her head.” At that point, the sisters began scuffling, with Reed attempting to snatch the weave off Tyteahni’s head. Reed then allegedly began raining punches down on her sister, who is a month into her pregnancy.
Police noted that while Tyteahni appeared uninjured, “She said that she was very sore and was going to the hospital to get her and her unborn baby checked out.” During a police interview, Tyteahni’s five-year-old daughter said that Reed came to the family’s home and “beat her mommy up.”
Reed told cops that a “physical altercation” occurred in the apartment, but she could not remember the details. Reed said that she knew her sister was pregnant, and told cops that she was also pregnant.
The police report does not disclose why Reed sought the return of the Christmas weave.
Reed, pictured above, was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman, a felony. Following her arrest, a cop noted, Reed became “very uncooperative” and “yelled at the top of her lungs, cursed me out, and accused me of being a racist.” Reed was released from custody Sunday after posting $35,000 bond.
In 2009, Reed was arrested on a felony count for allegedly battering a pregnant woman. That charge was subsequently reduced to misdemeanor battery, for which Reed pleaded no contest. She was sentenced to probation and was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and attend anger management classes. After subsequently violating her probation terms, Reed was sentenced to 20 days in the county jail. (2 pages)
