Deputies: Facebook fight leads to woman’s stabbing in Rock Hill

jmcfadden@heraldonline.comJanuary 15, 2013 

— At least one of six women who attacked a Catawba woman at a Rock Hill house Friday slashed her with either a box cutter or knife following a feud on Facebook, deputies say.

Shortly after 10 p.m., deputies responded to a Porter Road address, where Tameka Belton, 34, showed police that she had been cut on her left arm, just above her wrist, according to a York County Sheriff’s report. Police said Belton was still bleeding “heavily,” and much of the porch was soaked in blood.

Several witnesses told police that they, along with Belton, were getting ready for an evening out when someone knocked on the door, the report says. Belton opened it only to be dragged outside by several women.

The witnesses rushed outside to help Belton, but by the time they got outside, one of the women had cut Belton with a box cutter or a knife, the report states. After a brawl that spilled over into the road, the women fled in a gold Impala.

EMS took Belton to Piedmont Medical Center. She was treated and released that same day.

According to the witnesses, the attack stemmed from a feud on Facebook. Deputies have identified the suspects but no arrests had been made by Tuesday.
