Neighbors Feud in Hattieville

Kadisha Carter

A Hattieville woman alleges that her neighbor assaulted her with a vehicle and a machete. Twenty- eight-year-old Kadisha Carter reported to police that forty-year-old Florith Requeña assaulted her with a vehicle and a knife. When Requeña appeared before Magistrate Khiana Gordon, she pleaded not guilty to the accusation. In her report to police, Carter said that on Wednesday, June twenty ninth, at around eight thirty p.m. she was standing on the road in front of her house when suddenly she saw the headlights of a black sports utility vehicle driving towards her. She claims that she had to run into her yard for safety.  According to Carter, she then saw the vehicle come to a halt about fifteen yards away from her, before making a u-turn and began driving towards her. But, the vehicle passed by and that is when she claims she recognized the driver to be Florith Requeña. According to Carter, she went back on the road and about two minutes later she saw the same vehicle return on the street in front of her home. She alleges that Requeña exited the driver’s seat of the vehicle holding a machete in her hand. According to Carter, Requeña began to confront her about an incident that occurred with her child in front of a store earlier that day and that is when Requeña allegedly raised the machete in the air and swing it towards her. Carter claims that she ran down the street and Requeña set chase behind her. That is when a passerby reportedly intervened and stopped Requeña from causing any bodily harm to her. Police has since impounded Requeña vehicle. In court, Magistrate Gordon granted Requeña bail in the sum of two thousand dollars plus one surety of the same amount which she met.
