INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (PIX11) – Police arrested an Indianapolis high school student Sunday after video of a vicious attack on a girl and a young child was posted online, just days after video of a mob attack inside a Brooklyn McDonald’s led to multiple arrests.
The video is hard to watch, and shows a girl walking with her young brother in Brookside Park, located on the city’s Eastside neighborhood. Another girl, identified only as a 14-year-old from the same school, walks up to her and punches her in the face repeatedly as the young boy shrieks in terror.
“What did I do? What did I do?” the victim asks her attacker, “Stop, please stop!” The assembled crowd of cell phone photographers egg the attacker on as she drags her classmate by the hair and stomps on her head. Finally she is restrained by a boy watching the attack, and the victim takes her crying brother’s hand and walks away.
That isn’t the end, however, and after the girl filming dares the suspect to go after the two again, she does — attacking her from behind as the pair try to walk away. As she slams her fist into the girl’s face, the young boy tries to defend his sister but the girl turns on him as well, grabbing his neck with both hands and throwing him to the concrete ground.
A boy can be heard asking the girl filming if she captured the savage attack on video, and the girl replies excitedly, “Yeah!”
Sunday, Indianapolis police announced that the suspect in the video had been arrested on an unrelated charge of disorderly conduct. It’s not clear what charges she may face in the attack posted online.
