A third woman has been arrested in connection with a stabbing that took place at an Applebee's in Henry County, Ga.

Lakisha Boyd, 36, surrendered to police on July 16. She is the third member of her family, alongside Lasondra Boyd, 38, and Keterah Boyd, 30, to be arrested in connection with the knifing, according to AJC, an Atlanta, Georgia-based news organization. Demetrius Boyd, another family member sought in the incident, has not yet been apprehended. The three in custody face charges of aggravated assault and robbery.

Police say that a waitress was stabbed on July 10 after accidentally brushing up against one of the women dining at the restaurant after the customers had complained about slow service. The employee, who is unnamed in reports, was beaten and cut with a steak knife during the attack.

Video of the incident shows bystanders stepping in to break up the fight. The women who allegedly launched the assault left the restaurant without paying their $62.57 bill. They escaped in a white Infiniti SUV, according to 11Alive, an Atlanta, Georgia-based NBC affiliate.

The unnamed waitress received 15 stitches in her arm at the Piedmont Henry Hospital and returned to work the next day, according to AJC.

Police were led to the Boyds after posting about the altercation on Facebook. The status garnered over 3,500 shares.

Lasondra and Keterah Boyd, who also face misdemeanor charges of battery, criminal damage to property and theft of service were released from jail on July 16, according to AJC. They each posted $35,000 bond. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 20. Lakisha is expected to face similar misdemeanor charges.
