Ocala, Florida — An Ocala teen was arrested after she struck her girlfriend with a baseball bat.

Ocala Police responded to the Checkers, located at 1239 East Silver Springs Boulevard, and made contact with a female victim who stated that she and her girlfriend, Ke’asha Pullings, 18, had been in a physical altercation.

The victim said that Pullings had entered her bedroom and demanded to see her cell phone, and when the victim said no, the pair began to argue.

According to reports, the two then began to tussle over the phone, at which time Pullings grabbed the victim by the hair and said, “I got something for your ass.” Pullings then left the room and retrieved a wooden baseball bat.

Pullings then reentered the room and demanded the cell phone a second time. When the victim refused to hand over the phone, Pullings struck the victim on her rib cage with the baseball bat. The victim then gave the cell phone to Pullings and ran from the residence.

The victim used a neighbor’s cell phone to call her grandfather, who then drove her to checkers where they called police.

Pulling was arrested and charged with one count each of Aggravated Battery and Aggravated Assault. She was released on a $7,500 bond.
