DILLON, SC (WMBF) – An 18-year-old woman has been arrested after she allegedly threw hot grease on a woman after a confrontation, causing grease to splash on two other women near her back in July.

Makayla Woods is charged with two counts of first-degree assault and battery and wanted by the Dillon Police Department, according to documents.

On Saturday, July 25, Dillon Police responded to a hospital where three women were being treated for hot grease burns, according to the report.

The first victim said that she and Woods got into a physical altercation on Calhoun Street. Woods then went inside into the house, came back out with hot grease, and threw it onto the victim. She had several blisters on the left side of her body and face, the report states. The victim did want to press charges.

The other two victims corroborated the first victim’s story, and both had injuries from the hot grease, but said they did not want to press charges, as Woods did not intend to hit them with the grease.

Woods was arrested on Thursday, August 20.
