Police have identified and arrested a 16-year-old girl in connection with a massive brawl inside a Brooklyn-area McDonald’s, NBC reports.
The brutal brawl, which left a teenager beaten and bruised, occurred in the McDonald’s on Flatbush Avenue in Flatbush. Witnesses claim there were up to 10 girls attacking the teen throughout the 3-minute fight, but authorities have identified Aniah Ferguson as the ringleader.
The teenager has been charged as an adult with robbery and gang assault, according to NBC.
One boy who witnessed the attack told NBC 4 New York Wednesday he “felt bad for the girl,” but was concerned about intervening.
“I didn’t know what was going on and I was kind of scared, I’m not gonna lie,” said the boy, who asked not to be identified.
