NJ woman beaten in front of her 2-year-old as bystanders record attack

SALEM (PIX11) – A New Jersey woman was repeatedly beaten by another woman as her toddler son watched in horror.

On Tuesday June 25th, bystanders sat back, watched and even recorded the attack instead of jumping in to stop it.

A video of the beating was posted on Facebook before it was reported and taken down.

The graphic video shows the 2-year-old boy trying to protect his mother from being kicked while the attacker threatens to shoot her.

The fight started after the woman accused the victim of spreading rumors about her and her manager at McDonald’s.

The victim was left with limited vision in her left eye, a broken nose and many cuts and bruises.
