ALACHUA, Fla. – Brianna Denise Thomas, 19, of Gainesville, and Shaniya Nycole Wilson, 18, of Alachua, were arrested yesterday afternoon following a fight in the 14200 block of NW 156th Place in the City of Alachua.
At about 4:30 p.m., Alachua Police Department responded to reports of an altercation involving multiple parties. The victim, who reportedly recorded much of the incident on video, reported that Wilson, Thomas, and others approached her vehicle “aggressively.” Multiple witnesses reported that Wilson was holding a knife and that there were many bystanders nearby, including children. One witness reported that once it became known that the police had been called, Wilson ran away from the scene, dropped the knife, then came back and continued the dispute unarmed. Officers searched the area and reportedly found the knife nearby.
Thomas allegedly beat on the window of the vehicle while making threats to “beat” the occupant. She was charged with simple assault and released on signature bond.
Wilson was charged with aggravated assault and will be released on her own recognizance.
