Police make identifications in video of girl forced to fight, arrests likely

This video posted on YouTube that PIX11 brought to your attention this week shows a six-year-old in a white coat beating up a seven-year-old wearing  black coat, she doesn’t want to fight but a group of teenagers egg them on until she is left with no other option.

Authorities have identified everyone in the video, and police tell PIX11 the incident in fact did begin as a frenzy over candy being shared. During that frenzy the 12-year-old sister of the girl in the black coat made contact with another girl – at some point afterwards her crew and the victim crossed paths at this library just steps from Edgar Allan Poe park in the Bronx.

A 17-year-old instigated the fight saying let’s settle this outside and they went to the park. Police say the voice heard in this video is that of the 17-year-old.

Once in the park, the 12-year-old girl’s punishment was to have to watch them beat her sister who was threatened by the other teenagers with a beat down if she interfered.

Police say at least one person, possibly two, will be arrested in connection to the fight.
