Meet Shakieria Anquanette Shan Long.
The 22-year-old Florida woman stabbed a man in the neck earlier this month after he declined her requests to have sex, police allege.
Long, pictured at right, was “barbecuing and drinking” with friends at a Fort Pierce home on August 12 when trouble began, according to a witness cited in a police report.
The witness said that he was lounging on a couch when Long and the victim, Eugene Sylvester, entered the residence. “The suspect was screaming that she wanted the victim to have sex with her,” cops reported. But Sylvester, 32, declined Long’s advances, telling her to “go back where she had been all day and have sex.”
Sylvester told cops that Long was his children’s babysitter.
Long, who is known as “Sha Sha,” subsequently followed Sylvester to his room, where she allegedly “grabbed a knife and started jabbing” at him with the weapon. She then beckoned the witness, telling him that she had stabbed Sylvester (and that he was “leaking”).
The witness told investigators that he pressed a towel to Sylvester’s neck and began walking him home. But Long ran after them and “started punching the victim in his face,” as first reported by TCPalm.
During police questioning, Sylvester--whose wound needed a few stitches--said he did not want to have sex with Long due to her heavy drinking. While confirming that Long stabbed him in the neck, Sylvester said that he did not want to press charges against her.
Collared for felony battery, Long was booked into the St. Lucie County jail, where she remains locked up. At the time of the stabbing, Long was free on $3750 bond in connection with a June 6 arrest for disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on a law enforcement officer. That bond was cancelled following this month’s bust.
