A 14-year-old from Cherokee County allegedly sent her two older sisters to break into another teenager’s home in Kennesaw and choke her until she passed out, police said.
John Watson, the father of the girl who was allegedly attacked on Memorial Day, told Channel 2 Action News his daughter is traumatized.
“My daughter was on the porch crying,” Watson said. “We’re talking adults that chose to come and do this to a 14-year-old kid. It’s just mind-boggling.”
Breeanna Clark, 21, and Kirsten Clark, 17, both of Canton, were arrested and charged with 12 crimes each, including child cruelty and aggravated assault, according to jail records.
They allegedly broke into Watson’s home at the request of their younger sister, who had recently had a falling out with Watson’s daughter, Channel 2 reported.
Police told the news station that Watson’s daughter and a 13-year-old friend were in a bedroom when the two sisters allegedly punched, kicked and strangled them as they attempted to call 911.
Both sisters are in the Cobb County jail, but it’s unclear if there was any punishment for their sister.
Breeanna Clark was denied bond, and Kirsten Clark’s bond was set at $35,000, according to jail records.
