A Gwinnett County woman is in jail after police say she sneaked a man into her bedroom and attacked her family members with a 40-ounce bottle of Colt 45 and a can of Raid when they told her the man needed to go.
Jasmine Cheryl Byrd, 21, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of battery after the alleged altercation shortly after midnight Thursday.
After Byrd sneaked the man into her bedroom in Snellville, her siblings called their mother, asking what to do, a police report said. Byrd’s mother told the siblings to get the man out of the house, but when they told him to leave, Byrd locked her bedroom door with the man inside, the report said.
Byrd then opened the door and “became aggressive” towards her 16-year-old brother, pushing him in the face before they both began to hit each other, police said.
When they stopped hitting each other, Byrd found a 40-ounce bottle of Colt 45 and threw it at a 15-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man, hitting both of them, the report said. Byrd also pushed a 2-year-old child to the ground and tried to fight the others while wielding a can of Raid pest control spray, police said.
Byrd’s brother had bruises and scratches on his face and neck when the police arrived. The 15-year-old who was hit by the bottle was examined by paramedics after complaining of head pain, and the 22-year-old had bruises on his neck, the report said.
Byrd is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
