According to a probable cause affidavit the crimes happened between March 21 and March 30. Police began investigating after a battery complaint.
Lawrence County police officers interviewed a 15-year-old girl who says Schofield became angry at her and another girl because they would not let "Skylar's girlfriend" into the residence because Schofield's mother had told them the girl was too young to be dating Skylar.
When the two girls tried to keep the third girl out of house, Schofield allegedly shoved one onto a couch and swung his firsts at her. He then pushed a second girl and hit her in the mouth. He then allegedly threatened to slit their throats as they slept.
