Posted: Updated:

According to our media partners at The Georgetown Times and southstrandnews.com, a 29-year-old Pawleys Island woman was arrested after allegedly biting off a portion of the finger of another woman Wednesday morning.

According to an incident report, deputies were sent to a home in the 500 block of Parkersville Road where they found a 32-year-old woman bleeding from both hands.

The tip of her left index finger had been severed and she was also bleeding from her right thumb, the report states.

The woman was transported to the hospital, so deputies spoke with her boyfriend about what happened.

He said when Pyatt stooped by the house, he did not know she and his girlfriend had been fighting, so he let her inside.

He said Pyatt started arguing with his girlfriend, so he asked her to leave.

He said Pyatt and his girlfriend went on the front porch and he rushed out when he heard something fall.

He said he saw Pyatt biting his girlfriend's finger so he tried to separate them.

Once he was able to get them separated, Pyatt left, the report states.

When deputies met with Pyatt, she said the victim is her cousin and they have been having some family issues, She said they have been exchanging texts until her cousin told her to "bring it on."

Pyatt said she went to her cousin's house where they began to argue. She said her cousin "grabbed her by the throat" and "attempted to put her in a headlock," the report indicates.

She said her cousin would not let her go and bit her on the forehead. The deputy confirmed seeing what appeared to be a bite mark on her head.

She said she bit her cousin's finger in defense.

Pyatt emphasized she went to the residence to talk, not fight.

The victim later told deputies she told Pyatt to stay away from her house. She says she was bitten by Pyatt before she bit Pyatt.

The deputy noted because Pyatt went to her cousin's home knowing there may be trouble she "was found to be the primary aggressor." She was charged with aggravated assault and is out of jail under a $3,000 bond.
