An early morning altercation over a guy landed two women in jail, both facing misdemeanor offenses, police said.

Salisbury Police responded to a Carolina Boulevard home just before 1 a.m. today where they say three women, including two teenagers, were fighting. One of the women, armed with a stun gun and hammer also threw bleach on a vehicle and another woman backed into a parked car at the home.

It appears a group of people inside two vehicles went to the Salisbury home to confront a woman there. When police arrived,two of the vehicles were attempting to leave the area quickly.

Police charged Marissa Dawn Henderson, 18, of the 200 block of Four Lakes Drive, Cleveland, with misdemeanor simple assault. She was issued a $500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County jail.

Also charged in the incident was Trentney Jordan, 25, of the 2200 block of Teillium Fields Drive, Charlotte, with misdemeanor injury to personal property. Trentney Jordan was also issued a $500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County jail. A juvenile, a 15-year-old girl, armed with a stick, was not charged in the incident.

When officers arrived, a young woman, later identified as the 15-year-old juvenile, was armed with a stick. Another young woman, later identified as Marissa Henderson, was running after a vehicle with a large bottle of bleach in her hand and a stun gun in the other hand. Officials said at some point Henderson tossed aside the stun gun and retrieved a hammer.

She was ordered to put the hammer down, which she did. The juvenile was asked to put the stick down as well. She also complied.

The vehicle that Henderson is accused of tossing bleach on was driven by Tekia Jordan, who was not charged in the incident. There were three people in her car, including a 3-year-old child, police said.

Trentney Jordan, police said, rear-ended a car at the scene. There were three people in her vehicle, as well. All of the others were not charged in the altercation.

Trentney Jordan was convicted in 2013 in Cabarrus County of misdemeanor damage to property.
