Early Sunday morning, officers were called to the Waffle House at 1012 E. U.S. 80, finding a “blood-covered floor and tables in a state of disarray,” according an incident report filed by Pooler police.
A 33-year-old man had suffered cuts and scrapes on his face, marks left by the “spiked heel from a shoe,” police reported.
The victim told officers that he and his girlfriend were at a booth when a pair of sisters – one of whom is the mother of his children – came in and started an argument.
He tried to ignore them, police reported, even as they began hitting him. A Waffle House manager told police the women also hurled sugar and salt containers through a window.
At some point, the assailants went to the parking lot and damaged the man’s car, police reported.
They then returned inside, and the man struck at least one of the women, according to the report.
That’s when the women took off in a car; a Savannah-Chatham police officer spotted the getaway vehicle and followed it to Memorial University Medical Center, Pooler police reported.
One of the women was treated for a cut above her right eye before both were taken to the Pooler police department.
The suspects – identified as Kenya White, 29, of Meldrim; and Marrisha White, 32, of Hinesville – were each charged with battery and criminal damage to private property, according to the incident report. They were taken to the Chatham County jail.
Paramedics treated the victim at the scene, police reported.
