Police say the 15-year-old victim had bruises, red marks and scratches, and a large section of her hair had been cut off.

The victim told police she had been hanging out with a group of people that included 18-year-old Cassandra Teal Borden of Cedar, and they decided to go for a walk through the Ponds Golf course and into a wooded area.

The victim said Borden told her she brought her to the woods because she “snitched” on someone. Borden then started assaulting the girl.

Another woman, identified as 19-year-old Alexis Sue Nelson of Zimmerman, then took out a scissors and cut off a large section of the victim’s hair, according the criminal complaint.

The victim said her cellphone was also broken in the assault.

Video captured the assault and showed Borden hitting and kicking the victim 49 times. It also showed Nelson cutting her hair, according to the complaint.

Nelson was charged July 26 with fifth-degree assault. If convicted, she faces up to 90 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 10.

Borden was charged July 26 with fifth-degree assault and fourth-degree property damage. If convicted, she faces up to 90 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines on each charge. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 10.
