BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Three people in Blytheville have been arrested following a string of incidents, including one where a child was reportedly injured.

Criminal Investigation Division Commander Captain Scott Adams said the case started on Nov. 6 when investigators learned of an incident at a gas station connected to Kroger, 400 W. Moultrie Dr.

Investigators obtained video that had been recorded Friday and uploaded to social media that shows Shaquilla Rainey and Raven Wilson confront a woman that was parked at a pump.

Rainey and Raven attacked the woman inside the vehicle.

The women were seen laughing about the attack and spitting on the victim before leaving in their own vehicle.

Later that same day, officers responded to a house in the 2200-block of Birch Street in reference to several people forcing their way into a house and attacking the same woman.

There were seven children in the house at the time of this attack.

The victim identified both Rainey and Raven along with Roderick Wilson as some of the people who attacked her at her house.

Around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, officers were dispatched back to the house on Birch Street because the people had returned.

When officers arrived they were able to catch Rainey, Raven and Roderick along with the driver of their vehicle.

All four were taken into custody after police determined they had entered the house again and attacked not only the woman and her boyfriend but also injured the victim’s daughter who is less than one year old.

Officers were able to watch video of the incident, which had been recorded on a witness’ phone.

Rainey and Raven told investigators conflicting stories about the incidents.

According to a press release from the Blytheville Police Department, Roderick was uncooperative with investigators.

All three were arraigned in Blytheville District Court Monday.

Rainey and Raven are both charged with criminal trespassing, two counts of residential burglary, four counts of third degree battery, second degree battery, seven counts of endangering the welfare of a minor and engaging in criminal gang activity.

Roderick is charged with two counts of residential burglary, three counts of third degree battery, second degree battery, seven counts of endangering the welfare of a minor and engaging in criminal gang activity.

Bond was set at $35,000 cash for all three of the suspects.
