3 women accused of trying to break into North Lauderdale home

Three women were arrested Friday, days after they tried to break into another woman's home in North Lauderdale, authorities said.

The incident was reported Tuesday in the 8200 block of Southwest 10th Street.

According to an arrest report, Jaquala Jones, 18, Nashay Barnette, 19, and Victoria Nyack, 18, went to the home and threw rocks  at the victim's front-living room window.

Glass and rocks landed on the couch under the window, which nearly struck the victim and a 1-year-old child, Broward sheriff's deputies said.

The rocks also hit the victim's vehicle, damaging the body.

Authorities said the trio banged on the front door while screaming and attempted to get inside by turning the doorknob.

Detectives believe that the women were trying to get inside to beat the victim.

According to the suspects' arrest reports, the women returned to the home on Wednesday and broke the rear windows of the victim's 2008 Audi and 2011 Volkswagen with a baseball bat.

The estimated damage in both incidents is about $2,000.

Deputies said Jones took her 3-month-old baby with her on both occasions. Her child has been turned over to Child Protective Services.

Authorities said the victim identified Barnette and Nyack as two women with whom she previously had problems.

The women face various charges, including burglary, criminal mischief and throwing a missile into a building.

Jones also faces child neglect charges.
