In another case, a female teen is charged with slashing a woman with a knife.

Police were dispatched to the intersection of North Madison and Calhoun streets in reference to a fight in progress.

The 33-year-old female victim told officers she was assaulted by a woman.

The woman said she was waiting for the traffic light to change, when she was assaulted by Terrica Krishunda Newkirk.

“The victim stated that Newkirk approached her vehicle and started to hit her in the face. The victim also stated that Newkirk who knew she was pregnant, struck her in the stomach repeatedly,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

The victim also was bitten on the face by Newkirk, Hampton said.

“Officers on the scene could see physical evidence that the victim had been scratched in the face, and there was skin missing from her face as a result of the victim being bitten,” the officer said.

The victim was treated at Archbold Memorial Hospital.

Newkirk, 27, 621 N. Crawford St., is charged with battery against a female who is pregnant. She was released on a $1,100 bond.

In another case, police responded to 144 Persimmon St. in reference to an assault.

Witnesses at the residence told police Ke-Erica LaShae Marshall, 17, swiped at a woman with a knife, cutting her across the upper right chest.

“The victim was attempting to back away from the suspect as she (the assailant) was swinging the knife. After being cut, the victim fell to the ground, as the suspect attempted to walk off,” Hampton explained.
