Women arrested after stabbing
Two former employees of Beach Bums Bikini Bar were arrested after allegedly stabbing their former boss and spraying his eyes with bug spray, Oklahoma City police reported Tuesday. The incident happened June 11 at Terrace Apartments, 6600 NW 10. The manager of Beach Bums, 4007 NW 10, recently fired two women known to him only by their stage names, “Gorgeous” and “Imagine,” the manager's girlfriend told police. The women arrived at Joshua Sheppard's apartment and tried to kick in the door before his sister, who also lives at the apartment, chased them away with a baseball bat, according to an incident report. Sheppard arrived and confronted the women. One woman sprayed him with bug spray and the other stabbed him in the arm with a knife, the report states. Police arrested Falichia Willianson, 24, and Mercedes Sade Williams, 21, at the apartment complex about two hours after the confrontation on complaints of assault and battery. Willianson was arrested on an additional complaint of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. She remains in Oklahoma County jail. Williams was released June 12.
