Samantha Gonzalez and Christina Campos (pictured) were brutally attacked by a mob of girls in Astoria Park in Queens, New York on Friday.
According to CBS New York, the two eighth grade students were jumped by some violent female high school students in an attack that was caught on a cell phone video (below).
Gonzalez was reportedly trying to help Campos, who was being assaulted by the female mob, which included some boys.
“About seven to 10 girls just started grabbing me and held my hands and just started kicking me in the face,” Gonzalez told CBS New York. “They threw cones at me. They hit us with belt buckles, with Timberlands, umbrellas, guys kicking us, like guys, really?”
According to Campos, the same girls jumped her the day before and warned her they would do it again: “They came out of nowhere with so many people."
Sources say the mob of girls attend Long Island City High School.
“I was scared. I didn’t know what was going to happen to me. Was I going to live after this or was I going to be beat to death?” said Gonzalez, who had two black eyes and a broken nose.
Apparently, the cell phone video of the assault was posted on an unnamed website that glamorizes these types of assaults.
“I was furious because these kids did this to my daughter,” said Gonzalez’s mother, Nina Kunicki. “Those websites need to be shut down because it is feeding violence towards children.”
Police are searching for the students seen on the video, which was sent to New York City Council Member Peter Vallone via a friend on Facebook.
“They found it online on one of these Web sites dedicated to vicious beatings,” Vallone told the New York Post. “This is a gang of older high school girls brutally beating one or two junior high school girls. We can actually see one girl being held down and having her face stepped on. This is not something you see in Astoria."
