In an exceptionally weird story today, a pair of identical twin sisters are wanted in connection to allegedly beating a woman severely with a frying pan in the process of robbing her home. The twins, Kyra and Tyra Faison, 19, are to be considered armed and dangerous. Jokes about frying pans aside, if you see either sister, call 911.
The twins kicked in the door to a Morrow, Georgia home where a woman was shocked to see intruders. Kyra and Tyra proceeded to “beat the victim in the face with a frying pan,” according to the Clayton County Sherriff’s Office, before robbing her of some of her belongings and then fleeing the scene.
The two women allegedly dragged the victim outside, punching and kicking her as they stole her phone and her car keys. It is unclear what happened next from the police report, but the incident seems to have ended there. The girls are now both wanted on multiple charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, burglary and criminal trespass.
Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time the Faison twins have been at the center of criminal investigations. Just Thursday, Kyra Faison failed to appear to a court date in connection to theft charges in an incident where she is alleged to have fired a gun.
Additionally, in 2013, the girls were both attacked by “roughly 20” other girls in what was described as a gang attack. The incident took place when both girls were 13, and was allegedly committed by “YLOM,” or “Young Ladies Out Mobbing,” a gang of teenage girls. While they were certainly the victims in that case, police are now urging the public to contact them with any leads on the current case.
Both of the Faison twins are to be considered armed and dangerous, and it is not recommended that any members of the public approach or attempt to apprehend them. If you see either sister, call 911 immediately. Anyone with information on the case should contact the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Squad at 770-477-4479.
