Report: Three Women Accused Of Breaking Into The Home Of 12-Year-Old Girl And Assaulting Her

Three sisters in South Carolina were arrested by the Columbia Police Department after being accused of assaulting a 12-year-old girl earlier this month.

The three sisters reportedly entered the home of the 12-year-old girl without permission and attacked her. The police report states that the three women punched and slapped the girl in the face in her home.

The charges against the three sisters stem from a fight that occurred shortly after 6 p.m. on Oct. 1 at a home on the 1500 block of Craven Street.

The women are accused of going into the 12-year-old girl's house without permission and punching and slapping her several times in the face.

Columbia police reported that one sister, 29-year-old Shaquana Bacote was arrested last Wednesday. Shaquana's younger other sisters, 21-year-old Shontavia Bacote and 17-year-old sister Zaquiera Bacote were taken into custody on Monday in connection with the Oct. 1 incident. 


Shaquana Bacote, age 29, Shontavia Bacote, age 21, and Zaquiera, age 17, have all been charged with first degree assault and burglary first degree. The eldest sister, Shaquana has also been charged with malicious injury to property. 

The middle sister, Shontavia, has also been charged with strong arm robbery. Shontavia has also been accused of stealing the 12-year-old victims cell phone before all three sisters fled the home.


Police public information officer Jennifer Timmons revealed in a statement that the 12-year-old girl's injuries were not life-threatening.

Investigators don't appear to be real clear on the motive, but seem to believe the three women went after the girl over some type of disagreement the 12-year-old had with their younger sister. 

Shaquana, Shontavia, and Azquiera were all booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

People have taken to the Facebook pages of the sisters, slamming them for putting the beat-down on a young girl. Some people found it even more disturbing because some of the sisters are mothers themselves.


One person wrote the eldest sister Shaquana's page, "You dumb [expletive] for fighting a [expletive] 12 year old when you have kids of your own. [Expletive] idiot. What a role model. Somebody need to take your kids from you."
