A vicious attack could leave a woman scarred and disfigured for the rest of her life.
Police say Tanisha Armstrong snapped and went after a victim with a pot of boiling grease.
This arrest report details the disturbing things police say Armstrong did to a woman she knew, Valerie Williams.
The report says Armstrong poured hot cooking grease into Williams' mouth and all over her body last December while Armstrong's brother held her down.
Officers say it started as an argument.
Williams has been permanently disfigured and is in constant pain.
The victim told police that she had called Armstrong ugly and threw a rock through her window.
Officers say Armstrong's brother jumped Williams from behind and that's when Armstrong committed the attempted murder.
The report says Williams was in the hospital for months recovering.
