SLP Woman Punched, Threatened with Baseball Bat in TV Burglary with Family Ties

Three Minneapolis roommates are accused of aiding the burglary of the St. Louis Park woman. Two of the three charged are cousins of the victim.

Three women living together in Minneapolis have been arrested for their role in the violent burglary of a St. Louis Park woman, who was threatened with a baseball bat in her home.

The three roommates, Sharita Jacqui Towns, 26, Passion Lashay Lane, 21, and Ladonna Lashay Henderson, 29, have been charged with one felony count of aiding and abetting in a burglary and face up to 20 years behind bars.

According to the criminal complaint:

On July 27, a female St. Louis Park resident was watching television with her family in her home on the 3400 block of Boone Avenue when her cousins Towns and Lane entered the house without permission, accompanied by Henderson and possibly another unidentified person.

The three women attacked the St. Louis Park cousin in the living room. Lane and Henderson landed closed-fist punches.

Towns menaced her cousin with a baseball bat, while someone grabbed the woman by her arm, holding her against the wall while she was pummeled by the other two. (Towns told police she didn’t know who had the bat, and Henderson said that a fourth woman named “Lanesha” had the weapon.)

Henderson later told police that she grabbed the woman by the hair while Lane punched her cousin in the face.

After her family members pulled the assailants off her, the cousin noticed a man she couldn’t identify carry her television out the door.

Police found fresh bruises on the cousin’s face and arms and an empty TV stand in the living room.

The three women are being held in Hennepin County Jail.

Something tells me these "women" are not graduates of the Emily Post school for young ladies and would not know where to place a salad fork on formal entertaining. BTW... This is yet another reason to keep Section 8 housing out of the suburbs. SLP brought on this problem themselves. I just hope the social engineers in Edina are blocked in their left-wing efforts to foist subsidized housing on us. Subsidized housing = Crime and lower-property values... simple as that.

This crime is not acceptable anywhere by anybody! Mike B has a history of anonymously posting bigotry and racism. He has stated a wish to return to the Edina covenants and deed restrictions that prohibited non whites from buying in parts of Edina along with real estate agents that steered Jewish buyers away until 1960. These practices were declared unconstitutional 1948. (see Edina Website http://edinamn.gov/index.php?section=heritagelandmarks_countryclub He also has a history of posting disinformation about Section 8 housing. Miek B hates to be called out on his compulsive dishonesty.

Ms. Towns, Ms. Lane, and Ms. Henderson apparently did not learn that fighting and battery are not part of the curriculum at Miss Abigail's Finishing School for Young Ladies. I am afraid that this episode may negatively impact their matriculation at Old Greenwich County Day School.

"The three roommates, Sharita Jacqui Towns, 26, Passion Lashay Lane, 21, and Ladonna Lashay Henderson, 29, have been charged with one felony count of aiding and abetting in a burglary and face up to 20 years behind bars." Freakonomics has proven that when you give your child a stupid name, you will end up with a stupid adult.
