A fight inside a Temple Hills strip club led to the stabbing of two women by two Washington, D.C., women early Friday morning, according to Prince George’s police.
Cpl. Larry Johnson, a county police spokesman, said around 1:45 a.m. Friday, police responded to the report of a cutting at the Hangar Club in the 6400 block of Old Branch Avenue. Upon their arrival, officers found two women in the parking lot suffering from stab wounds, he said.
Johnson said the two victims were taken to a local hospital for treatment and have since been released.
Police arrested Washington, D.C., residents Kailah Jameka Robinson, 19, of the 2300 block of Green Street SE and Ebony Deana Jackson, 22, of the 200 block of 57th Place NW.
Robinson, who Johnson said in a statement admitted her involvement in the incident, has been charged with second degree assault, while Jackson is charged with attempted murder and first degree assault.
Johnson said that a preliminary investigation revealed that the victims and suspects got into a fight inside the club that spilled into the parking lot, where the victims were stabbed. The suspects fled by car, but police stopped them thanks to the victims’ description of the vehicle, he said.
Online court records or attorney listings for the incident were not yet available Friday afternoon.
