Video captures Brooklyn nail salon brawl, prompting calls for business to close

She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals". Surveillance footage obtained by the New York Daily News and other media outlets begins in the middle of the confrontation, when a woman in a manicurist's smock is already pointing what looks like a broom handle at two black women.

About 150 predominantly African-American demonstrators marched from New Red Apple Nails at 1426 Nostrand Ave. - scene of the melee caught on tape Friday - to the Beautiful Red Apple Nails at 1224 Nostrand Ave. and trapped four employees inside.

A woman on the sidewalk also held a homemade sign saying, "Take Your Broomsticks and fly away, you witches!"

The woman who initially posted video of the incident also said a patron refused to pay the salon because she felt the employee did not do a good job, prompting the fight.

A spokesperson for the Brooklyn district attorney's office says they are in the process of examining all of the evidence, including videos that were not available at the time of the arraignments.

"Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them", Mercy Maduka stated on Facebook. The women were dissatisfied with the service from the salon and ultimately, refused to pay $5 for a "f**ked up" eyebrow job.

No other arrests have been in the incident. Police say Huiyue Zheng, 32, was arrested on charges of criminal assault while possession a weapon, assault causing injury, menacing and harassment.

Police said Thomas hit an employee, who then in turn struck the customer with a broom.

The n0w-viral video shows a nail salon in chaos - a loose flip-flop on the floor, manicure stations pushed roughly to the side.

"We don't need to protest, we need to financially castrate this business". (If the) police say you pay for the pedicure, then you pay for the pedicure. Some protesters urged black residents in the neighborhood not spent their money at the salon. "We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!"

Those who use public services might usually think they're right, but - in reality - it's far more likely that the person who spends every day working there has a better idea of what's correct or not.
