Women suspected of vandalizing Cayce Riverwalk are arrested

From Dashcam video

From City of Cayce Spokeswoman Ashley Hunter – On Tuesday, the City of Cayce released all dashcam and bodycam videos to the public in order to represent the facts and full interaction with two females suspected of vandalizing the Cayce Riverwalk on Monday.  

When a Cayce officer approached the women that matched the description of the suspects leaving the Riverwalk, the women refused to identify themselves, became erratic, and one of the women falsely accused an officer of “standing on her neck.”

At that time, the investigation was ongoing.

Thursday both suspected females are in police custody.

Yasmin Kasongo Mwamba, 26, and Deeaira Golda Kraus, 24, both of Columbia, were arrested and charged with Malicious Injury to Real Property and Public Disorderly Conduct. (Arrest information attached.) The Cayce Department of Public Safety was assisted by the Carolina Regional Fugitive Task Force who located both females shortly after 1:00 PM.

During the June 8th incident, both suspects were uncooperative and verbally aggressive towards officers, stating they were part of “a revolution” and telling the officers that they were “going down.”
