Video has surfaced of an assault in which three women allegedly teamed up to attack another woman they reportedly used to bully in high school (video below).

The video, which reportedly took place next to the Saluda River in Columbia, South Carolina, on March 15 shows three young women punching, hitting and scratching their 20-year-old victim.

The victim had a broken nose and a concussion from the assault.

Arlinda Craft, 18, Leigh Hill, 19, and Megan Williams, 20, have been charged with second-degree assault and battery by mob after Columbia police used the video for the investigation, according to WIS.

“No one defended me, out of the 30 people that were hanging around -- which is really pathetic in my eyes,” the victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, told The State.

According to Jennifer Timmons, a spokeswoman for the Columbia Police Department, “possible additional charges are being evaluated” for the three suspects.

The victim told The State her three attackers used to bully her in high school, which reached a peak during a fight when she was in 10th grade.

“I got my point across, they didn’t mess with me for the longest time,” she said. “There was a fight, after they bullied me for so long.”

The victim said Williams approached her after the two had not seen each other for months.

“Megan said, ‘Why you been talking [bad] about me?’ I hadn’t seen her in months,” she told The State.

The confrontation was quickly followed by one girl pulling the victim up by her hair and throwing her to the ground with the two other girls.

A man can be heard on the video telling another person not to interfere or he would knock them out.

According to the victim, the three girls “paid their bond and they are out roaming the streets as we speak.”
