WESLEY CHAPEL — It started as an argument between two sisters over toast and quickly escalated into a brawl that left one with a bump on the head and the other in jail.
Maria Victoria Acevedo, 21, walked into the kitchen about 1:40 p.m. Sunday to find her 16-year-old sister making toast with Acevedo's bread. According to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report, Acevedo became enraged, despite her sister's apology, and hit her twice in the head with a 6-inch metal cooking pot, then pulled her sister's hair and slammed her head into the floor. The younger sister managed to break away and ran into her bedroom, where she barricaded the door and sent a Facebook message for help to a cousin, the report said.
Another sister who watched the incident gave deputies a similar account and said that Acevedo tried to kick in the sister's bedroom door and hit it with a knife. Deputies responded to the home at 30300 Hatz Way after receiving several 911 hangup calls, the report said.
The younger sister had a bump on her head and a small cut on her right shoulder. Acevedo had no injuries.
Acevedo was arrested on a charge of domestic battery, and was later released from the Land O'Lakes jail without having to post bail.
