We all know that times are tough, but in Marathon last night a scene straight out of Charles Dickens worst imagination played out when a brawl that erupted between neighbors over two slices of bread ended with a two-month-old baby getting sliced in the head with a knife.
argument erupted. Carey eventually
slammed the door in Thurman's face after "muscling" it away from her neighbor, who was pulling at the door from the outside,

Thurman walked back to her apartment complex and returned a short time later armed with a knife. The bread-seeking teenager says that Carey struck her first with a baby stroller and threatened her with a shard from a broken plate.
Thurman has been charged with aggravated battery, burglary and a probation violation.
