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.
