Two charged in waitress beating

Two teenagers have been charged with beating up a waitress last week following an incident in which one of their friends was kicked out of a Fredericksburg restaurant for underage drinking, police said.

That incident occurred just before 1 a.m. on Jan. 25 at Buffalo Wild Wings in Central Park.

The waitress notified security after seeing an 18-year-old woman with an alcoholic beverage, and the teen was escorted out of the business.

The evicted teen's friends later confronted the 19-year-old waitress. The waitress was beaten in the face and had chunks of her hair pulled out, according to police reports, before a 30-year-old Woodbridge man picked her up and moved her away from her attackers.

That same man also got the license-tag number of the vehicle they left in, greatly assisting Detective Wayne Hunnicutt's investigation.

Nakima Jiggetts, 18, of King George County and a 16-year-old Spotsylvania County girl were charged with assault, city police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said.

Jiggetts was released on a personal recognizance bond on the misdemeanor charge. The juvenile was turned over to her guardians.

Police initially thought a third person was involved in the attack, but Bledsoe said the investigation revealed that that girl, also 16, was not involved in the assault.
