Third teen arrested after video showing little girls forced to fight (UPDATE)

girls fight

A third teen has been arrested after a shocking video circulated showing two little girls being forced to fight in a New York City park.

The third teenager arrested is 14, the older sister of one of the little girls and the alleged ringleader instigating the fight, according to the Daily News.

NBC reported last week that two teens, ages 14 and 15, were charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

According to NYC Park Advocates, police were questioning a 17-year-old girl and looking for another, 19.

PIX11 reported that the incident occurred after candy was shared earlier that day, and the older sisters of the little girls had some type of run-in.

Apparently, the groups ran into each other later that day in the Bronx, and a sister ordered the little girls to fight as retribution for the earlier altercation.

A NYPD spokeswoman confirmed to Metro Thursday that the department is investigating the video, which was posted on YouTube.

In the video, which is about two minutes and 30 seconds long, adults encourage the two little girls to hit each other.

The video includes plenty of curse words as the adults taunt the girls even as one starts to cry.

“I’m not playing,” the girl screams as she stops fighting.

The adults still push her to hit the other girl even as they laugh while she protests.
