WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) — The early start to Black Friday brought some great deals to the table after this Thanksgiving, but at the Walmart in Whiteville, it also brought violence.
According to an incident report, a Whiteville police officer was on patrol at Walmart around 10:30 p.m. Thursday when a fight broke out in the toy section.
Zakia Myrah Pierre (above left), 23, and Alma Juanita Robinson (above right), 24, are charged with simple affray. Both women say the other started the fight with words and fists.
According to the report, Pierre says she heard Robinson say, “There goes that hoe (sic).” She says Robinson then came toward her, Pierre took off her jacket, Robinson started to hit her, and Pierre hit back.
Robinson told police Pierre yelled, “What’s up?” and started to swing at her, and that’s when Robinson swung back.
A judge will have the final say when the duo heads back to court in February.
Both women are out of jail on $1,000 unsecured bond.
