Identical twin sisters who allegedly attacked a woman with a frying pan before robbing her home are considered “armed and dangerous” as authorities in Georgia search for them.
Kyra and Tyra Faison, 19, earned a high spot on the Clayton County Sheriff’s “Most Wanted” list over the weekend following the alleged Dec. 10 incident in Morrow, Georgia.
The teens arrived at the woman's house and "kicked open the door" of the woman’s home and wielded a pan to allegedly “beat the victim in the face with a frying pan,” according to a statement from the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office.
They then allegedly dragged the woman outside, snatched her car keys and phone while pummeling her with their fists.
A social media photo accompanied the sheriff's release supposedly depicting the Faison twins “brandishing handguns.”
Both sisters are now facing “twin warrants” for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, burglary and criminal trespass amongst other charges, authorities said.
“Since these twins want to commit twin crimes in Clayton County, Sheriff Victor Hill has both of them occupying the #2 spot of his top ten most wanted at the same time,” it reads. “This ensures a double reservation at ‘The Hill-ton’ where the twins can face the wall twice together at Georgia’s toughest para-military jail.”
Beyond the warrants for the frying pan robbery, Kyra Faison is also wanted for being a no-show in court last Thursday on a separate theft case where she allegedly fired a gun, according to the release.
Several years ago, the Faison twins claimed to be targeted in a brutal melee.
The girls and their mother said they were targeted by as many as 20 other girls during near North Clayton Middle School, where they had recently enrolled back in 2014.
The mother and her twin daughters, who were 13 at the time, claimed the middle school girls who trailed them were members of a gang known as “Y.L.O.M.” or Young Ladies Out Mobbing.
“There were so many girls who were attacking us, I don’t even know where they all came from,” their sobbing mother, Charnetta Davis, told WSB-TV at the time.
The sisters were reduced to wearing black scarves to mask the hair that they say had been yanked from their scalps.
Now, years later, the girls are wanted by authorities. They’ve been described as weighing about 117 pounds, standing 5-foot-2, with brown eyes, according to a wanted poster.
“Both should be considered armed and dangerous and if spotted 911 should be called immediately,” the release states.
If anyone has any information concerning the whereabouts of these suspects, the Clayton County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Squad can be contacted at 770-477-4479. The Nixle Tip Line can also be used to remain anonymous.
