Two women got into a fistfight at an Augusta restaurant over a $53 loan, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

A 29-year-old woman told deputies she had been assaulted Saturday afternoon at Harvest Table Buffet at 1505 Gordon Highway.

The report said she had asked a friend for the $53 she had loaned her. Her friend became angry and punched her in the face and back. Deputies noted the woman had redness on her right cheek and scratches on her upper back.
