WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — More details have emerged after three women allegedly attacked several employees at a western Pennsylvania diner because one of the women wanted child support from a cook who worked there.
Police say 26-year-old Tori Thomas, of Washington, Pa. hit a 27-year-old man in the arm with a baseball bat, then also threw boiling hot Alfredo sauce on one of the owners of Cee Tee's Diner, 46-year-old Carla Smith. She was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital burn unit.
Police have charged Thomas and two friends, 25-year-old Summer Thomas and 24-year-old Amanda Terry with aggravated assault and other charges in the attack Friday afternoon in Canton Township. The other women also live in Washington, which is about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.
The women face a preliminary hearing Nov. 7.
