Florida woman attacks her sister with acid during domestic violence dispute

A woman in Florida was taken into custody after an argument with her sister turned violent, resulting in a dangerous acid attack that injured her sister’s daughter. The incident occurred in Miami-Dade County, where Tenisha Geddis, 38, was arrested and charged with felony aggravated child abuse, felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and misdemeanor battery. The arrest report revealed that the altercation took place at Geddis’ residence, escalating from a fight between the sisters. While police were present, a second argument erupted, leading Geddis to allegedly throw acid at her sister, but instead hitting her sister’s daughter.

The Miami-Dade Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance at Geddis’ home on NW 26th Avenue. Upon arrival, officers witnessed Geddis striking her sister in the face. However, both parties refused to cooperate with the police or file a report, resulting in the officers leaving the scene. Unfortunately, a second argument broke out between Geddis and her sister, during which Geddis began throwing objects at her sister.

As tensions escalated, Geddis reportedly grabbed a large white bottle of HDX muriatic acid, commonly used for pool maintenance, and attempted to throw it at her sister. The acid, known for its corrosive properties, missed the intended target and struck her sister’s daughter instead. The young girl suffered injuries to the front area of her body. The police, present at the scene, quickly intervened and reported the incident to the Domestic Violence Unit.

Following the incident, authorities arrested Geddis and transported her to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. Her bond was set at $7,500. The specific details surrounding the altercation and the condition of the injured child were not disclosed in the reports. Law enforcement agencies have yet to provide further information regarding the incident.
