2 suspects in beating, stabbing of Applebee’s waitress arrested, granted bond

2 suspects in beating, stabbing of Applebee’s waitress arrested, granted bond

A judge has granted bond to two women charged in connection with the recent beating and stabbing of an Applebee’s waitress at a McDonough, Georgia, restaurant. Lasondra Boyd, 38, and Keterah Boyd, 30, were arrested Friday in Wilkinson County near Macon, Georgia, after McDonough police identified the women after posting a lookout alert, McDonough police Maj. Kyle Helgerson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Monday. “Deputies received a tip of their whereabouts, and they were apprehended at a party down there,” Helgerson said. The women were booked into the Henry County Jail Friday night and granted $35,000 bond Monday morning, officials said. Two of their relatives, Lakisha and Demetrius Boyd, are still at large. All four women -- three sisters and a cousin -- face charges of aggravated assault and robbery in the July 10 attack on an Applebee’s waitress. According to police, the waitress was beaten and stabbed with a steak knife after she accidentally brushed against one woman’s leg.  The woman was sitting with her leg out in the aisle, Helgerson said. The server, who is in her 20s, apologized after the first accidental contact and left to get the table’s food and drinks when the women reportedly complained about slow service. The second time she brushed against the woman while serving the food, it “infuriated the suspect,” Helgerson said. “All four of them got out of the table and began to assault the waitress,” he said, adding that one of them grabbed a steak knife.

Police said they were seen leaving the restaurant parking lot in a white Infiniti SUV. The waitress required 15 stitches after she was stabbed in her forearm. She was treated at Piedmont Henry Hospital and returned to work the next day, according to a statement from an Applebee’s spokesperson. The women allegedly took the waitress’s tip money before they skipped out on a $62.57 bill, police said.  The Boyds were identified after McDonough police posted surveillance images from the restaurant’s parking lot to Facebook. The initial post was shared 3,500 times.  A preliminary hearing for Lasondra and Keterah Boyd has been scheduled for Aug. 20. They also face misdemeanor charges of battery, criminal damage to property and theft of service. Police are still asking for the public’s help to locate Lakisha and Demetrius Boyd. Anyone with information should call 911 or the McDonough Police Department 770-957-1218.

Man was 'awoken by demons' before murdering Eatonville woman with pipe, police say

The man accused of killing an Eatonville woman Saturday was “awoken by demons,” according to Orange County court documents. Lesley Satenay, 40, of St. Lucia faces homicide charges for killing Krystal Phillips early Saturday morning at her home in Eatonville. The murder was not premeditated, court paperwork said. Eatonville Police said they were called to a home on Deacon Jones Boulevard around 4:30 a.m. Saturday for the report of a body. When police arrived, officers said Satenay was standing on the porch stating, “the devil was inside his room.” Officers observed blood on Satenay’s pants and feet as he told officers he “hit the devil with a bible,” court papers said.

Investigators also found a frying pan near Phillips’ body, even though investigators said the murder happened in a bedroom.

With Putin, Trump calls Russia probe a ‘disaster’

With Putin, Trump calls Russia probe a ‘disaster’

After several hours of talks with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Finland, President Donald Trump on Monday called the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections a ‘disaster,’ as he seemingly rejected the findings of his own intelligence organizations, accepting the word of Putin that Russia did not meddle in the last campaign for President, and making the case that the investigation had undermined relations between the two countries. “President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia,” Mr. Trump told reporters at a joint news conference. “I will say this – I don’t see any reason why it would be.” “President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial,” Mr. Trump added, as the President wrapped up the news conference by attacking FBI official Peter Strzok, and declaring the probe of Special Counsel Robert Mueller “a giant witch hunt.” “It’s ridiculous – it’s ridiculous what’s going on with the probe,” the President said. “There was no collusion with the campaign.” President Trump declines to side with US intelligence that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Instead, Trump repeatedly asked about the Democratic National Committee's email server and Hillary Clinton's missing emails. https://t.co/wdM2dx6aVo pic.twitter.com/yX6UE6wBYy — CNN International (@cnni) July 16, 2018 Asked directly about Russian interference, the President instead talked about the missing emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the computer server that Russians allegedly hacked at the Democratic National Committee, and ex-House IT aide Imran Awan.
