FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) — Five people were charged with attempted murder and first-degree attempted assault in connection to an incident last December.
The brutal attack left a woman with serious injuries that put her into the hospital.
Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly told News 19 that the victim was attacked from behind at the Drink Factory on Huntsville Road near downtown Florence.
“Looking at that surveillance video, to know that that happened in the city of Florence… It’s shocking,” Connolly said.
Florence Police Sergeant Cliff Billingsley said the two women charged reportedly took the victim to the ground and continuously stomped on her head and neck while the three men blocked bouncers and others from breaking up the fight.
“The victim and some friends had stopped in after going to a baby shower,” Connolly said. “The victim was accosted by these five people and almost beat to death.”
The five charged were Dontramese Littleton, 29; Jamia Shelby, 46; Marcus Cole, 33; Willie Shelby, 39; and Ronnie Shelby, 54.
All five people were taken to the Lauderdale County Detention Center. Their bond was set at $62,500. Arraignment for all five accused attackers is set for May 25.
