A 17-year-old girl has been arrested after a group of teens were caught on video pummeling another girl inside a Brooklyn McDonald’s, sources tell CBS2.
Charges against the teen are pending, sources said.
As CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported, the vicious fight broke out at a fast food restaurant Flatbush on Monday afternoon.
The video starts with the gang assault already underway with fists flying inside the McDonald’s at 943 Flatbush Ave.
The target of the violence, a 15-year-old girl dressed in blue, gets no help from spectators, including some adults. Some spectators even climbed on table tops to get a better look as six to seven girls pummeled and kicked the victim, Carlin reported.
Many people took out their cellphones, but Carlin reported they were recording the fight rather than calling for help.
The scene was even more violent during the final two minutes of the video, as the victim is seen getting punched in the face and repeatedly kicked while on the floor.
Police had been searching for the 17-year-old suspect, who is seen in the video wearing a black hoodie, but later is seen in only a purple bra and jeans.
In the video, she is seen kicking the victim in the head.
There were so many teenagers inside the McDonald’s that when someone flagged down a police officer after the fight, he had to call for backup to restore order, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.
The girls involved all attend nearby Erasmus Hall High School, D’Auria reported.
Police sources said the young victim and her mother were contacted by investigators but refused to cooperate.
