A Rock Hill woman was charged with an assault on another woman that damaged food and merchandise in a store this weekend, according to Rock Hill Police.

Lanardra Shanay Calhoun, 25, of Glenarden Drive was charged with third-degree assault and battery, damage to property and giving false information to police, according to a police report.

Officers met with Calhoun at the Nick Mart on South Heckle Boulevard about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, according to the report. Calhoun, who initially gave officers her sister’s name, said she didn’t assault the victim but that the other woman pulled her hair from behind and started hitting her. Officers saw red sauce on her shoes which she said was spilled during the altercation.

Surveillance video in the store showed Calhoun striking the victim unprovoked and pushing the victim into the store, knocking over displays of food and merchandise, police said. A male witness pulled the two women apart.

The store manager told police the fight damaged about $100 in merchandise.

Jail staff later learned after contacting the victim that Calhoun gave her sister’s identity. She told police she gave them her sister’s identity because she knew she had a criminal history and her sister didn’t.
