*Disturbing video has surfaced showing four teens brutally beating a pregnant woman and kicking her young daughter in the head Tuesday (July 14) in Brooklyn, Illinois.
Footage that went viral on Twitter shows three Black female teens attacking a Black woman as she stood outside a home with her toddler daughter. The three girls are seen punching her, pushing her onto the ground and yanking her hair. A Black male jumps into the fight and kicks her toddler in the head, sending her spiraling towards the ground.
The child is heard in the clip wailing as her mom remains crumpled helplessly on the ground being punched. When the victim finally get sup and tries to walk towards her home, the male kicks her in the back, sending her flying forward to hit her head on the side of a doorframe.
The video sparked outrage on social media with folks demanding justice for the victim. One Twitter user wrote: “The way the baby was hanging on her mom’s leg and then he kicked the baby y’all are f***ing sick. This is against the code y’all don’t jump and y’all don’t fight in front of kids.”
The mother of the male who kicked the toddler defended her son on Facebook writing, “He didn’t try to kick that baby, he tried to jump over the baby on to her and made a mistake. My kid is not the type to kick a baby, accidents happen.”
