A mother and daughter from Oxford were arrested in Wake County Wednesday for a fight that took place Monday at Falls Lake.

According to arrest warrants, Tabatha Edwards, 33, and her daughter, Brittani Rice, 16, both of 2245 Lauren Mill Drive, face assault charges for an attack on a juvenile female. Rice, the warrant says, punched the girl and threw her to the ground.

A third woman, Melissa Powell, 18, of the same address, is also charged with aiding and abetting the assault. She was expected to surrender to authorities Friday.
