west memphis beating

The woman and her friends apparently broke into the victim’s home, entered a bedroom and ordered the sleeping woman to get up and fight.

The victim got up out of bed and made an effort to fight the home invader, but she was quickly overpowered and subdued by the intruder who pummeled her face while the cameraman and another woman laughed in the background.

The West Memphis Police are investigating the assault. According to FOX13 the suspect is identified as Shatarvara Smith.

Smith will be charged aggravated residential burglary, aggravated assault and second-degree battery.

No word on whether her accomplices, who also entered the woman’s apartment unlawfuly, will be arrested.

UPDATE: Shatarvara Smith is in custody. WREG reports she is charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated assault and second-degree battery.

Angry social media sleuths located the intruder’s Facebook page and furiously flooded her timeline with comments.
