Salon staff beat customer with brooms after she refuses to pay

"What I'm here to do right now is to get justice for my 58-year-old mother, my 21-year-old daughter, that had acetone thrown on them and got beat with sticks like they are in the 1960s", Abby Moses, the mother of 21-year-old Christina Thomas-the customer involved in the fracas-said at the protest, according to the Times.

'That's my grandmother, stop, ' the granddaughter yells - and the onslaught begins to calm down as the woman shouts: 'Call the cops!'

The incident happened last week at New Red Apple Nails on Nostrand Avenue near Martense Street.

A woman on the sidewalk also held a homemade sign saying, "Take Your Broomsticks and fly away, you witches!" The women were dissatisfied with the service from the salon and ultimately, refused to pay $5 for a "f**ked up" eyebrow job. Maduka, who originally posted the video, wrote on Facebook, "Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them".

No other arrests have been in the incident.

Police later charged Huiyue Zheng, 32 of Brooklyn, with assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harrassment.

A 41-year-old man suffered heatstroke while working on the highway close to Murcia, in southeastern Spain, on Wednesday. The Spanish Ministry of Health on Friday confirmed three deaths this week due to the hot weather.

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

Thomas was also charged with a misdemeanor assault. She apparently punched and slapped someone, dragging them over the floor.

Police told Pix11 that Zheng had been hospitalized and had injuries on her face and body.

Surveillance video released by the Chinese American Nail Association shows the verbal argument escalating into a physical fight.

"We don't need to protest, we need to financially castrate this business. They can not survive and we can not feed them", Johnson said at the protest, according to a Facebook video. At least one protester screamed, "where is ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement)?" implying that the salon's Asian employees might be undocumented immigrants. Many demand it be closed, and tell locals take their business elsewhere. "We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!" Many of them rallied outside the shop Monday to protest the violence.
