— Two women have been arrested and charged in connection with the November beating of a Rock Hill woman who suffered injuries when a group of women fractured her cheek bone and hit her in the face with a brick, according to police.

Chiquita Culp, 28, reported to police that around 3 a.m. on Nov. 3 three women attacked her after she left a Rock Hill club and went to Bob’s Food Mart on East Main Street, according to a Rock Hill Police report. One of the attackers, 18-year-old Torrisha Johnson, hit Culp in the face with a brick.

Johnson, Markeia Agurs, 21, and another woman, 23, attacked Culp while she was on the ground before they left the scene, the report states. Culp went to Piedmont Medical Center, where she learned that her left cheek bone was fractured. She also lost two teeth, suffered a cut on her lip and had difficulty walking because of a swollen foot.

Witnesses initially refused to speak with police about the incident.

Johnson and Agurs were both arrested Tuesday and charged with third-degree assault and battery by a mob. Both were released the same day. Johnson got out on a $10,000 bond and Agurs left jail on a $5,000 bond.
