According to the authorities, the assailant forced their way into the house and beat the victim with a cross believing that she’s possessed.
Assaulters Denied Victim Food during Exorcism
This Monday, the authorities arrested 28-year-old Brittany Jones after the woman physically abused her elderly neighbor. Tiara Jones, Brittany’s 26-year-old sister and accomplice, is also wanted in connection with the murder but all attempt to locate her have failed.
Based on the police report, on the 19th of March, Brittany and Tiara broke into their 57-year-old neighbor’s home and restrained the victim, allegedly trying to ward off a supernatural entity that took refuge inside the woman’s body.
According to the victim, who was not named, during the said ritual, Brittany and her sister struck her with a wooden crucifix and denied her food, water, and access to a bathroom. She also claims that the exorcism lasted for at least one day during which she was repeatedly beaten with the wooden cross.
The very next day, the woman managed to escape and seek refuge at a neighbor’s house from where she contacted the authorities.
When the law enforcement officials arrived at the victim’s Lorick Circle home, they’ve found evidence of a struggle. According to the police report, the house was in disarray as the suspects appeared to be searching for something.
Later that day, the victim was taken to the hospital, where she received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. Doctors said that apart from a few bruises on her arms and chest and the fact that she hadn’t had a meal in over a day, the patient is otherwise in good health.
Brittany was taken into custody, charged with first-degree assault and kidnapping and booked into county jail on a $100,000 bond. Her sister’s whereabouts are unknown.
