Perhaps inspired by The Other Woman, two South Carolina women with children fathered by the same man joined forces to attack him because he has another girlfriend.
The Smoking Gun reports that 23-year-old Tabitha Martin lured 21-year-old Rodrick Tucker into the bedroom of her Spartanburg, S.C. home on May 6, then presented a surprise: Courtney Littlejohn, the mother of his other child. Littlejohn, 23, and Martin pulled him off the bed and jumped him, hitting him a barrage of punches to the face and head. Though he escaped the rumble in the bedroom, Tucker was leveled once again and Littlejohn sat on him to keep him in place.That's when they took turns torturing him with a Taser.
Desperate, Tucker grabbed one of his kids, assuming the sight of an innocent child would make the women relent. He must not have ever taken the time to get to know them, as they continued the attack until he handed the baby to Martin. This gave him time to flee.
Tucker told police he believed Martin and Littlejohn were mad because he's currently in a new relationship. Both were arrested yesterday on domestic violence charges. At least they have a new-found friendship.
