About 3 p.m. Wednesday, police were called to Shalimar Drive, where they discovered Autelia McDougald, 33, with a large knot on her head. She told police that after she arrived home, a neighbor, Lathronia Nelson, 28, grabbed her pocketbook, pulled her to the ground and hit her with a hammer. During the fight, McDougald said, her weave was pulled from her head.

Nelson told police she felt threatened because McDougald had pepper spray. She reported her shoulder was injured during the fight.

Police said the fight originated from an ongoing dispute over comments the women made about each other on Facebook.

Nelson was not arrested, but police advised McDougald of warrant procedures.
