Two teenage girls – 14 and 15 years-old – have been arrested for helping to instigate a fight between two 7 year-olds, filming it, and posting it on the internet.
The disturbing video shows the two little girls going at it, surrounded by a wild crowd of teenage onlookers. It ends after one of the little girls begins to sob, exclaiming that she didn’t want to fight in the first place.
It is believed that the two teenage girls instigated the fight in order to get a video featured on WorldStar Hip-Hop.
Investigators learned of the fight on Thursday after the mother of one of the 7-year-olds saw the video on the Internet and contacted the police, Mr. Browne said.
The teenagers were not related to the victims. The investigation, however, is continuing: detectives questioned the 19-year-old sister of one victim and sought to question a fourth girl, also 19, said Mr. Browne, adding that there could be other arrests.
Investigators said they believed the 14-year-old had posted the video on her Facebook page. At least two teenagers recorded the fight, Mr. Browne said.
