Video shows brutal attack in Indy park

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A video showing a female brutally attacking another female in Indianapolis has surfaced online.

The video shows not only the attacker hitting a female, but a young child after the victims tried to walk away.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials confirm they are aware of the video and that a detective who works on cases involving juveniles has been assigned to the case. The Cyber Crimes Unit does have a copy of the video, according to police.

Police report that the attack occurred at Brookside Park on Saturday. When IMPD responded to a delayed battery report later on Saturday, the female victim told police she knew the attacker from school.

It was not clear what caused the altercation. However, the female victim can be heard in the video asking her attacker what they had done to deserve the attack.

IMPD officials said the suspect in the video has been arrested in connection with an unrelated incident and is now in custody.
