CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Investigators say two sisters and a woman are behind bars following a fight at a bathroom in a Charleston strip club.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office charged 25-year-old Tabitha L. Burns, 23-year-old Bianca L. Burns and 27-year-old Martha Castellanos-Avendano with third-degree assault by mob.

On Sunday at 2:45 a.m., deputies responded to Thee Southern Belle Gentleman's Club on 2028 Pittsburg Ave. in reference to a fight and assault.

The 40-year-old victim told authorities that she was attending the women's bathroom at the business when she saw three women enter the bathroom. According to the victim, she saw two of the women enter the handicap stall, and went to the stall to tell the women "the rules of the house" which states that there's only one person to each stall at a time.

A sheriff's office report states Tabitha Burns then left the stall and confronted the attendant by cursing at her and said that she was in the stall with her sister.

Investigators say Burns then shoved the victim which started a fight between Burns and the attendant. The victim reported that Burns' sister and the other woman who had entered the bathroom with Burns, joined in the fight and began to assault the attendant together.

Deputies say a witness attempted to help the attendant. A few moments later a couple of dancers along with security came in and gained control of the three women, who were then escorted outside, according to the sheriff's office.

An incident report states a "cocaine baggy"was found in the stall the sisters had been in.
