Affidavit: Woman whose girlfriend was hit by car was lured to area


The 18-year-old woman whose 17-year-old girlfriend police say was intentionally run over twice was told where to retrieve some items by an old girlfriend in a “set up,” according to court documents.

When Seantel McGairk and the 17-year-old got to the Chevrolet Impala near an abandoned fire station on Kimmel Lane in Jefferson Twp. on Oct. 31, they said a red Dodge Charger approached at a fast pace, according to a complaint and affidavit filed in Montgomery County’s Western Division Municipal Court.

An altercation ended with the 17-year-old being struck twice by a vehicle and needing medical attention for several broken bones, according to police and McGairk.

The 17-year-old’s medical condition was upgraded Friday from critical to stable, according to a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office sergeant.

Tara Dunbar, 34, and Khadijah Thompson, 23, will be arraigned Monday on charges of felonious assault, abduction and improper handling of a firearm in a vehicle, according to court records.

According to the affidavit, McGairk told a detective she briefly lived with another uncharged woman, but was kicked out due to issues with Thompson, known as “Tink.” The woman told McGairk to get her things from a white Chevrolet Impala.

“McGairk stated that she and (the 17-year-old) got into the Impala to protect themselves due to believing that the situation was a ‘set up,’ ” a detective wrote. “McGairk stated that a female named Jug (Dunbar) approached the vehicle” with McGairk’s old girlfriend and Thompson.

“McGairk stated that Dunbar tapped the window with a semiautomatic pistol and told them to get out of the vehicle. McGairk stated that Thompson was able to get (the 17-year-old) out of the vehicle and began assaulting her.”

The detective wrote that McGairk said she was held back at gunpoint by Dunbar before she was able to intervene and told the 17-year-old to run.

That’s when Thompson got in the Impala and ran down the 17-year-old twice and both vehicles fled the area, according to the affidavit.

At 6:37 p.m. Oct. 31, a detective located the Charger, which had both defendants and McGairk’s ex-girlfriend inside, according to the affidavit.
