Third Teen Arrested For Alleged Involvement In Bronx 'Girl Fight'

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) -- A third arrest has been made in connection with a fight between a pair of young girls that was caught on video.

Two girls, ages 14 and 15, were arrested on Friday and charged with endangering the welfare of a child after being questioned by the Bronx Special Victims Unit.

The teens were apparently at the scene and egged the girls on during the fight, sources told CBS 2.

On Saturday a third girl, 17, was arrested in connection with the fight.

The fight was between a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old at Poe Park in the Grand Concourse section of the Bronx.

Many who've seen the video are glad to hear people are being held responsible for the senseless violence.

"Separate the fight. Why would you let them kill each other like that?" Luis Polanco said.

"The video was very upsetting because I have nieces and nephews the same age," Krizia Aponte said.
