Salon staff beat customer with brooms after she refuses to pay

Video of the attack was posted to social media and prompted protests outside the salon on Monday.

The video shows a portion of the brawl at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Ave, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn.

A family member of the victim says the situation was blown out of proportion, but community activists say it's nothing new. "They can not survive and we can not feed them", Johnson said in Facebook video capturing the protest. The women were dissatisfied with the service from the salon and ultimately, refused to pay $5 for a "f**ked up" eyebrow job. If the police say you can go, you pay nothing.

"Hitting them like animals", she said. "I stopped coming here altogether, but as soon as I heard all the injustices that had happened, I felt like it was my responsibility to come and show support".

Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault and weapon possession, reported the NY Post. Customer Christina Thomas was charged with misdemeanor assault and also released on her own recognizance.

The clip has been viewed over 200,000 times.

Following the incident, residents have protested the salon and have called for its closing.

The wild scene was captured on cell phone video. One sign read "Black $$$ Matter".

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams released a statement on Monday, saying, "This morning, a constituent sent me video of Friday's incident at Flatbush's New Red Apple Nails salon".

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. "If we go into an establishment to get something done, and then we end up being assaulted, something certainly needs to happen to that establishment". "We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down".

In another video from the protests, a man waves a Pan-African flag over the police barricades. "They take our money and run". Police officers guide him back inside. They left behind a shuttered salon and protesters hoping it stays that way.

"Imigration needs 2 b called that's it", a woman named Erica Moss wrote.
