An Ocala woman is accused of ambushing a woman and beating her up outside her home.
Antyarria T’Yshanti McCloud, 19, of 3574 S.W. 149th Terrace, was charged with simple battery after the incident, which happened around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday when the victim was arriving home from work.
The victim told a Marion County sheriff’s deputy she was walking in from the driveway when she heard someone yell, but she didn’t know exactly what was said. She said McCloud, who was with a man, jumped on her and struck her multiple times in the face. The victim said she just “balled up,” to protect herself, according to the sheriff’s office report.
The victim said she was screaming for her juvenile daughter, who was sleeping inside the home, to come help when McCloud stopped hitting her. She said the man, whose name and relationship to the victim was redacted from the report, told her, “That’s what you get, you rattin’ bitch,” the report said.
The deputy observed the victim had a scratch on her right cheek, mild swelling to her upper lip and a raised bump on the right side of her head. The victim’s clothes were also dirty and her hair was messy. The victim’s daughter said she didn’t see the battery, but she did hear a man say, “That’s what you get, you rattin’ bitch,” according to the report.
The victim described the assailant as a black female with braids wearing black pant and a black hooded sweatshirt. She said she knew it was someone with the nickname, “Juvy,” and she didn’t know her first name, but her last name was McCloud, the report said.
The victim provided the address of the person who was with McCloud and said she is always there with him. Deputies responded to the home on SW 149th Terrace, where they spoke with McCloud, who would not identify herself at first. When asked to see her hooded sweatshirt, she responded, “Why do you need to see my black sweatshirt?” Both McCloud and the man said they had not left their residence all night and were just waking up when the deputies arrived, according to the report.
A deputy observed McCloud had scrapes on her knee that appeared to be fresh. When asked where the scrapes came from, McCloud said they were old. After being read her Miranda warning, McCloud said she didn’t want to speak with deputies at that time, the report said.
McCloud was taken to the Marion County Jail, where she was released later Tuesday on $1,000 bond.
