Police have arrested a fugitive twin who was wanted for a violent frying pan attack on a Clayton County woman on Dec. 12.
19-year-old twins Kyra and Tyra Faison went on the run after allegedly attacking Lyiah Elsko with a frying pan, leaving the 20-year-old woman with facial and bodily injuries.
Police said Tyra Faison turned herself in after the twins’s pictures were circulated to news media outlets.
Kyra Faison is still on the run and should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who spots Kyra is asked to call 911 immediately.
Authorities say the twins kicked in the door to an apartment where Elskoe was staying and beat her about the face and head. They then dragged her out of the apartment and stole her phone and car keys.
Authorities say the brutal assault was over a man.
The twins were escalated to the top of the Clayton County Sheriff’s most wanted list. They face charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, robbery, burglary with intent to commit a felony in the first degree and criminal trespassing.
The twins’ mother suggested her daughters have not been the same since they were jumped by a gang of 20 girls when they were 13.
Charnetta Davis told Channel 2 Action News that her daughters were followed home from Clayton Middle School and attacked by a gang of girls on May 20, 2014.
Kyra and Tyra were punched, kicked and stomped, Davis told Channel 2.
“I’ve never in my life experienced anything like this before,” Davis said in 2014. “I feel like I’ve done everything that I could to help my daughters.”
