NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Three more teenage girls were apprehended Friday after a group of teens were caught on video assaulting another girl inside a Brooklyn McDonald’s.
As CBS2’s Weijia Jiang reported, one 15-year-old girl surrendered with her mother Friday afternoon and was being questioned at the 70th Precinct, police sources said.READ MORE: Gen. Colin Powell, Former Secretary Of State, Dies At 84 Due To Complications From COVID-19
A second 15-year-old girl surrendered a short time later with an attorney, police sources said.
A third girl, also 15, was taken off a plane in Atlanta that was headed to Jamaica, sources told 1010 WINS. She was apprehended by Atlanta police on an NYPD warrant, police sources said.
Police first arrested 16-year-old Aniah Ferguson Thursday and identified her as the main aggressor. Ferguson was arraigned as an adult on robbery, gang assault and other charges Friday.
The other girls were expected to face similar charges, Jiang reported.
A judge set bail for Ferguson at $500,000 bond. She did not enter a plea, and is due back in court later this month.
“It’s very disturbing, very disturbing,” Gail Royal of Flatbush said of the fight that prompted the arrests. “I was very upset to see that.”
The video shows a group attacking a 15-year-old girl dressed in blue while dozens of spectators cheer. Some could even be seen climbing onto table tops to get a better look as six to seven girls pummeled and kicked the victim.
