SALEM (PIX11) – [UPDATE] – The New Jersey mother beaten by another woman worked with her attacker at McDonald’s.
Cops say 25-year-old LaTia Harris attacked Catherine Ferreira on Tuesday June 25th, in front of a group of people including Ferreira’s two-year-old son.
The only person who tried to stop the fight was the little boy, the other bystanders sat back, watched and even recorded it instead of helping.
The video of the beating was posted on Facebook before it was reported and taken down.
The graphic video shows the two-year-old crying and kicking the attacker as his mother gets punched and kicked repeatedly.
Cops say Harris also threatened to shoot the woman as well as hit the little boy.
The fight started after Harris accused the victim of spreading rumors about her and her manager at McDonald’s.
Ferreira was hit approximately 20 times, leaving her with limited vision in her left eye, a broken nose and many cuts and bruises.
Right now Harris is facing charges of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats, but once she is caught she could face other charges.
So far none of the witnesses who stood by and watched the attack are facing any charges.
