A Rock Hill woman, 23, told authorities she was beaten by four women Monday with her own car keys and a 1960s-era police nightstick.

The woman’s injuries landed her in the Piedmont Medical Center where she underwent a CT scan on Monday afternoon, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.

The fight started after the woman became intoxicated the night before and someone at a home on Alton Road in Rock Hill stole her car keys, she told deputies.

Without her keys, she was unable to drive home Sunday night, she said.

The woman slept in her car outside the residence and a fight ensued Monday morning, according to the report.

Before the fight, one of the women accused in the beating asked the victim for two of her Clonazepam pills, the report states. The woman complied before she was threatened by the group, she told deputies.

She went to her car to get her police nightstick, the report states, but the group took the stick from her. She told deputies that the women beat her with the stick, her car keys and kicked her while she was on the ground, according to the report.

The victim retrieved her keys and tried to drive away, but one of the women threw a children’s bicycle into the windshield of her Honda Civic, the report states.

The Clonazepam pills – 71 in all – were taken during the altercation, according to the report.

During the investigation, a sheriff’s deputy found the empty pill bottle and a sandwich bag with marijuana residue inside, the report states.

The pills were prescribed to the woman and the prescription had been filled the day before the fight, according to authorities.

The woman told police she wants to press charges against the four women who attacked her. The owner of the car, the victim’s father, plans to press charges for damage to the Honda, the report states.
