Nekesta Townsel kicks 15 year old girl in head, hits her with car during dispute

36-year-old Nekesta Denean Townsel had an altercation with Fallon Batts and her 15-year-old daughter, C. Suggs, at a Golden Avenue Residence late April 19th. When officers arrived, they spoke with Batts, who said she told Suggs to get her siblings from Golden Avenue. This is where Townsel approached her and accused her of soliciting. Then, Suggs told her she was on the phone with a friend. This was when Townsel took her Samsung Galaxy 14 cell phone, hung it up, and threw it to the ground, causing it to break. Suggs said Townsel then pushed her several times, sparking a fight, where they fell to the ground. She told officers that Townsel kicked her in the head and then went to her Kia Forte. Townsel then grabbed a steering wheel club and chased Suggs around. Suggs started walking home, during which Townsel entered her car and struck her with it. This left bruises on the left side of Suggs’ head and a cut on her right arm. The cellphone is worth $200. Suggs’s mother, Batts, arrived at the scene in her black Ford Ranger and blocked Townsel in. Townsel then rammed Batts’ Ranger repeatedly, causing damage. Townsel was taken into custody for two counts of aggravated assault and vandalism.
