MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police are investigating after a woman was seriously burned with hot coffee during a fight at a local Perkins restaurant.

Authorities were called to the Perkins at 1544 University Ave. in St. Paul around 3 a.m. Saturday, regarding a fight in the bathroom.

Upon arrival, they found the victim, Chnika Blair, of St. Paul, with second- and third-degree burns over approximately 7 percent of her body.

St. Paul Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos says Blair got into a fight with several women in the bathroom. During the fight, Sgt. Paulos says one of the suspects allegedly told the victim “You’re going to burn,” just before pouring hot coffee on the her upper back and upper buttocks area.

Sha’Tara Carpenter, of St. Paul, resisted officers but was eventually arrested.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
