Authorities have finally arrested a woman accused last summer of pouring bleach into the eyes of a woman inside Church’s Chicken in Augusta.
Khadi Ashanti Fair, 28, of Circular Drive, Augusta, was arrested Sunday for battery. (Story continues below.)
Authorities say Fair came into the chicken restaurant just after lunchtime on July 27. She started yelling at the victim for calling the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services on her.
Fair then threw a cup of bleach into the victim’s eyes. The bleach also splashed into the face of another woman in the restaurant, a sheriff’s report says.
The victim said she only knew the woman as “Khadi.” Deputies found a woman name Khadi on Facebook and looked up her information in their computer system, finding a previous photo taken at the Richmond County Jail, a report says. The officer then positively identified the picture as Khadi Fair.
The victim who was splashed in the eyes was taken to Augusta University Hospital by ambulance. The other victim refused treatment and said she was able to simply wipe off the bleach from her face.
Fair was arrested over the weekend and released from jail after meeting bond requirements. A court date is unknown.
