Sisters Arrested In Victoria’s Secret Black Friday Melee At Westfield Annapolis

| January 30, 2014, 10:45 AM | 3 Comments

On November 29, 2013 a juvenile female victim reported to the Anne Arundel County Police Department that she was assaulted at the Victoria’s Secret Store in the Annapolis Mall.  The assault took place shortly after midnight on “Black Friday.”   Cell phone video of the fight has over 130,000 views on YouTube.

Over the past 60 days, the Southern District Detective Unit has followed up on various tips from the public and reviewed video surveillance from cell phone video which recorded the assault taking place, video from the Annapolis Mall, and video from other specialty stores within the Annapolis Mall.

Based on the recovered video, detectives were able to track the suspects to a store that they had been in prior to the assault at Victoria Secret.  Detectives subpoenaed store records and based on the results of those records detectives were able to positively identify the two suspects as:

Antonia Janee Ash, 18, and Ebonie Ta Shawn Brooks, 31, both of the 8400 block of Poplar Hill Dr. Clinton MD 20735.

On Thursday January 30, 2014, Detectives from the Anne Arundel County Police Department Southern District Detective Unit, with the assistance of the Prince George’s County Police Department, served a Search and Seizure Warrant at 8415 Poplar Hill Drive, Clinton Maryland.  Further evidence implicating the suspects was recovered from the house.

Both suspects, who are sisters, were located inside the residence and were taken into custody.   They have been charged with 1st Degree Assault, 2nd Degree Assault, Reckless Endangerment, Disorderly Conduct, Disturbing the Peace, & Affray.

The Anne Arundel County Police Department would like to thank the public, the Annapolis Mall Security and the Westfield Annapolis Mall Management for their assistance and cooperation in this investigation.

“I appreciate the tenacity of the detectives investigating this crime,” said Chief of Police Kevin Davis. “No one should expect or accept this type of behavior at a shopping mall any time of year, especially during the holiday season.”

  1. I may be missing something here but why was so much police work put into finding two sisters who started a fight in Victoria’s Secret on Black Friday? Everyone knows Black Friday is becoming the National hockey game for shoppers nationwide. It’s just part of the show nowadays.

    Gotta love that word “affray”. What’s the penalty for all these charges? Slap on the wrist and don’t do it, again?

    I think they put so much effort into finding out the identity of these two girls primarily because of the fact that the video went viral (130,000 views on YouTube) and with so many people having seen this abhorrent behavior it was imperative to find them and indict them to send a message. People need to realize that this behavior cannot be tolerated and that there are indeed consequences of such behavior. It may have been funny to a lot of folks when it went viral and they first saw it online but I know two people who aren’t laughing now.

    Good job AA Co Police! We need to send a message that this sort of behavior isn’t going to be tolerated in our malls.
