Police filed charges against Destiny Davis and Diamond Howard after a video of the incident was shared on social media earlier this week.
Cherry Hill Police have filed additional charges against two women from Camden after a disturbance that took place at a local Wawa.
Destiny J. Davis, 19, has been charged with aggravated assault and Diamond P. Howard, 18, has been charged with simple assault following an investigation into a disturbance that occurred at the Wawa located at 500 Route 38 in Cherry Hill on Nov. 17 at approximately 12:05 a.m.
Davis and Howard were involved in a verbal altercation with a female patron inside the store. While Davis and the patron argued, Howard climbed on top of the counter and spit at the patron while yelling at her. Davis then attacked the patron by pushing her to the ground and punching her repeatedly until others intervened and separated her from the victim.
Responding police units encountered Davis and Howard and both were arrested for disorderly conduct. The initial disturbance was captured by Wawa surveillance cameras and observed by responding officers. However, police say the officers were not able to view any Wawa surveillance video, which captured the actual assault. Following processing for disorderly conduct charges the females were released pending future charges for simple assault.
During the week of Nov. 26, a video circulated on social media that captured the assault. Police viewed the video and further investigation resulted in charges being signed against Davis for aggravated assault for her role in the attack. Howard was charged with simple assault for her actions during the incident.
