They told officers that Eskew threw a shoe at one of them, dragged her by the hair, then covered her nose and mouth which caused breathing to be difficult. The other juvenile stated he struck her with a belt multiple times, leaving marks on her thigh and forearm. She also told officers that at some point she tried to turn away and her top lip was cut. Officers took photos of the injuries. Eskew denied hitting the girls.
