January 26, 2019

An Aiken woman was charged Thursday in connection with a reported assault on a juvenile at a Laurens Street residence.

Sabrina Renee Oakman, 32, is charged with unlawful conduct toward a child, according to jail records.

Aiken Public Safety officers responded to the 800 block of Laurens Street around 8 a.m. Thursday after a juvenile called 911 claiming Oakman had assaulted her, according to the report.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the juvenile who said she had stayed at her grandmother’s the night before, but had to come home because there was no room for her and her sibling, the report states.

The victim said she returned home and fell asleep in the front bedroom of the residence. She claimed Oakman then came home and attempted to hit her in the face with a belt, the report states.

The victim said she managed to “dodge” the belt by grabbing it to prevent it from hitting her, but then she and Oakman began to “tussle” over the belt, police reported.

Oakman then reportedly grabbed the juvenile by her hair, punched her in the face and kicked her in the back, according to the report.

The victim claimed Oakman then asked a second juvenile at the residence to bring her scissors and she used them to cut the victim’s hair, the report states.

Investigators reported seeing blood under the juvenile’s nose and on her shirt. They also noticed her hair had been cut in what appeared to be an erratic manner.

Oakman was arrested Thursday and taken to the Aiken County detention center, where she was released on bond Friday afternoon, records show.

The juveniles were all left in the custody of their grandmother.
