FORT MILL, S.C. — A North Carolina woman was arrested at a South Carolina hotel Tuesday after she allegedly tried to steal breakfast from the hotel, then assaulted and bit employees. 

Nenni Ferri Young, 30, of Charlotte was charged with three counts of third-degree assault and battery and one count each of malicious injury to personal property and public disorderly conduct, according to WBTV.

Police responded to the Quality Inn on Lakemont Boulevard in Fort Mill after receiving a report about several assaults.

Hotel employees told police they saw Young, who was not a guest at the hotel, standing in line for breakfast.

The employees then tried to prevent Young from leaving and told her that taking the food was considered stealing.

That’s when Young punched the employee in the neck, according to WBTV. He was knocked to the ground with his pants also falling to the ground.

A female employee noticed the assault and tried to restrain Young. According to police, Young bit the employee’s forearm which caused a large bruise.

According to WBTV, Young also broke a glass table worth $600 and a decorative sailboat worth $800.

When police arrived, hotel employees had restrained Young by holding her on the ground.

She resisted arrest and kicked another employee. Then Young accused a male employee of trying to sexually assault her, according to WBTV.

Young is being held at the  York County Detention Center under a $4,480 bond.
