Two women are now behind bars after Cadiz Police say they assaulted two sisters Sunday night.
26-year old Shanonna N. Crenshaw of Walnut Street, Hopkinsville and her 23-year old sister, Keshia M. Cavanaugh of Wharton Road, Cadiz were both arrested and charged with second degree assault.
Cadiz Police Sergeant Richard Martin was called to the Trigg County Hospital shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday night in reference to an assault that allegedly took place within city limits.
Cadiz Police say an investigation determined that Crenshaw and Cavanaugh used a blunt instrument to assault sisters, Keisha Stewart and Karlie Stewart of Cadiz, who were both being treated and released from the hospital.
Police say the assaults stem from a separate incident that occurred the previous night between the Stewarts and a family member of Crenshaw and Cavanaugh, which remains under investigation.
Crenshaw and Cavanaugh are both lodged in the Christian County Jail.
