Brooklyn Family Attacked With Acetone And Brooms By Nail Salon Workers

Viral Video Shows Brooklyn Nail Salon Workers Hitting Woman With A Broom

Mercy Maduka says she witnessed the fight, recorded it with her phone and posted the video to social media Friday - where it garnered hundreds of thousands of views. "No eyebrow, no problem'".

In a follow-up post, she responded to commenters asking her why she hadn't tried to intervene in the beating, saying that police had already showed up, "and thats like 10 Asians with weapon".

According to the Post, women on both sides of the scuffle were arrested.

"They didn't complain about the pedicure", Zheng told the newspaper.

The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office says the investigation is ongoing, and charges will be evaluated accordingly.

Two women were arrested and are facing assault charges after a brawl erupted at a Brooklyn, N.Y., nail salon on Friday night, prompting a protest two days later in an effort to shut the business down.

It's unclear when the salon will reopen and so far, no additional arrests have been made.

The customer's grandmother was hit with a broom handle after the dispute inside New Red Apple Nails.

The incident has inflamed racial tensions, and prompted calls for black residents to spend their money elsewhere.

Those who use public services might usually think they're right, but - in reality - it's far more likely that the person who spends every day working there has a better idea of what's correct or not.

Meanwhile, surveillance video obtained by the New York Daily News showed an employee walking up to two women with two fellow staffers standing behind him - both of them holding brooms.

"We need them to know they can not make any money when they treat our grandmothers like this". "Black $$$ Matter", one home-made sign read. "We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down".

In another video from the protests, a man waves a Pan-African flag over the police barricades. Police officers guide him back inside. In the official complaint reported by The New York Post, the employees claimed the customer slapped and dragged an employee across the floor.

Similar comments appeared on a live-stream of the protests taking place outside the salon.

"Where is ICE check for INS status!"
