Deputies said a "Facebook issue" between coworkers led to the assault of one of the women at a Spartanburg business Monday.

Spartanburg County deputies said the victim was in the break room at Workability when the other woman walked in and punched her on the top of the head.

According to a sheriff's office report, the victim claimed to not have provoked the attack but she had recent "Facebook issues" with the suspect, identified as Julie Phetasa.

Deputies said they saw redness on the victim's head and arrested Phetasa, 31, on a third-degree assault and battery charge. She was released from jail on bond.

The report did not elaborate on what the social issue between the co-workers was.
