ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Six women are accused of beating a man and woman who were trick-or-treating Tuesday night in the Lincolnville neighborhood of St. Augustine. 

Marquietta Elmore, 33, Lashet Johnson, 39, Tamera Johnson, 21, Anaya Oxendine, 19, Makayla Oxendine, 20, and Kanisha Singleton, 23, are all charged with battery.

The man, who is 24 years old, said three of the women ambushed him as he was walking home in the area of Martin Luther King Avenue and Lovett Street. He said they hit him across the head with bottles and punched him. The officer who took the report said he saw broken glass in the man's hair.
