ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJLA) - A wild melee broke out inside an Annapolis Mall store on Black Friday, authorities say, and police are searching for the women who provoked the fight.
The fight happened just as Black Friday was kicking off - at about 12:30 a.m. last Friday - at a Victoria's Secret store inside the mall, Anne Arundel County Police say. It started when a 17-year-old girl alleges that two women accused her of "poking her in the eye."
At that point, the suspects began throwing punches inside the crowded store. The victim alleges that one woman pushed her to the floor and began punching, and a short time later, the second person began punching her in the head.
The entire incident was caught on camera, and the victim told authorities that she didn't know the people who attacked her.
"We know at a minimum there was an assault," Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said. "We're trying to get to the bottom of who the aggressor was."
The victim claims to be battered and bruised, but she suffered no serious injuries.
Anyone who may have witnessed the fight or have information about the fight is urged to contact Anne Arundel County Police investigators at 410-222-1965.
