BRONX (PIX11)- Police have picked up a third teenager in connection with that brawl between two little girls in the Bronx that became a YouTube sensation.

Cops took a 14-year-old into custody, charging her with child endangerment.

Police have already arrested a 14 and a 15-year-old, also charging them with child endangerment.

The video showed the girls, ages 6 and 7, beating each other up as the teens egg them on.

The video has been taken down.

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.

A YouTube video in which adults repeatedly push two young girls until they physically attack each other is raising disturbing questions about neglect, bullying, bad role modeling.

The clip features a bully in action – the little girl in the white jacket — being encouraged by someone who’s older, and off camera to start a fight with the other little girl she’s facing in the black jacket.

Both girls can’t be much older than nine or 10 years old.

They’re babies pitted against each other like prize fighters, or pit bulls in what is believed to be a New York City park.

The little girl in the black jacket can clearly be heard saying, “I’M NOT HITTING YOU”.

She does not want to fight, but has little choice thanks to the adults who leave few options.  A full-on fight breaks out amidst the cheers of a misguided crowd.

Perhaps most disturbing about this story – child welfare officials have been unable to do anything about it.

A spokesman for the city’s Administration for Children’s Services tells Pix11,

“We took a look at the video. We were surprised and very much disturbed by what we saw. But it’s impossible to tell if the people egging on the two young girls are teenagers or adults, where the incident happened – or when. Without someone calling in to report this incident, we have nothing to go on, no names, no addresses – and unfortunately, no report that we are able to investigate.”

If you recognize either of the those two little girls, or recognize any of the older girls voices – pick up the phone and call the NY state child abuse and maltreatment hotline. That number to the statewide central register: 800-342-3720.
