BROOKLYN (PIX11)-- A 14-year-old girl was questioned by investigators in connection to the vicious assault last week near Prospect Park that was recorded and posted on social media.

The investigation into the gang-connected beating has new leads, thanks in part to the victim in the viral video identifying herself to police.

Tony Herbert of the National Action Network reacted Tuesday evening telling PIX 11 News, "I actually commend the family members that were behind getting this young lady coming forward."

On June 27, a cell phone video was shared on Facebook that showed a woman violently kicked and punched by a group of three teenaged girls.

The NYPD confirmed to PIX 11 News Tuesday evening that the investigation into the assault is active and open. No arrests have been made in the case.
