Chiefland Police are still looking for a woman they believe to have been involved in a scuffle Sunday night that left several people battered and bruised.
According to a CPD incident report, Vickie Donald, 40, of Chiefland, pulled in to Prairie Oaks Apartments Sunday night enraged over allegations that her daughter had been beaten in a fight earlier that day by someone living in the apartment complex.
At about 10:30 p.m., Donald got out of her car, according to witness statements in the report, and began yelling and swinging what appeared to be a wooden chair leg in the air.
Donald then hit 20-year-old Shavantai Powell, of Gainesville, in the back with the weapon, sending the woman to the ground. Two bystanders went to Powell's aid, according to the report. Both were hit in the head with the chair leg.
Mothers of the alleged victims said Donald then pulled a box cutter from her bra and began swinging it wildly in an attempt to cut Powell.
Donald, who fled before police arrived, is sought on three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
