A household move turned ugly in Stafford County, authorities say, with a public dispute and two arrests.
Stafford Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy said Deputy Scott Meyers went to the McDonald’s on Stanstead Road—adjacent to Carter’s Crossing shopping center off U.S. 17 in Falmouth—about 5 p.m. Saturday in response to reports of a fight.
When Meyers arrived, the victim told him she’d been eating with her children when a former roommate, a woman, came in and attacked her, Kennedy said.
The victim said she was punched by and had her hair pulled by the woman, whose boyfriend then came in and persuaded her to leave, Kennedy said.
The victim told police the former roommate was angry with her because she was moving out of a home on nearby Noble Court, where she’d been living and paying rent, Kennedy said.
After independent witnesses verified details of the fight, deputies went to Noble Court and arrested 36-year-old Daven Jerenda Williams and charged her with misdemeanor assault and battery, Kennedy said.
The victim called police a short time later and reported that Williams’ boyfriend, 22-year-old Kijuan Jakee Edwards, had called her and threatened to kill her boyfriend if she didn’t drop the charge against Williams, Kennedy said.
Police returned to the Noble Court residence and arrested Edwards, charging him with obstructing justice by intimidating a witness, Kennedy said.
Edwards was placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail on the misdemeanor charge.
