By Jessica Simeone. Two teens were arrested today for orchestrating a fight between two grade-school girls in The Bronx that was videotaped and posted on YouTube, police said. The fight allegedly stemmed from an early fight between two older girls over candy, police source said. Police are still determining whether anyone else was behind the video. The video has since been taken off YouTube.
The mother of the 7-year-old girl in the black coat -- who is seen crying and walking away at the end of the video -- went to police after recognizing her daughter in a news report. Investigators said the teenage sister of the other girl in the video, the 6-year-old girl in the white coat, instigated the fight. Police said the year-old sister apparently felt disrespected when the year-old sister of the girl in the black coat accidentally bumped into an older teen while picking up candy that had been thrown on the ground at Edgar Allan Poe Park in the Bronx a week prior to the filmed fight. The forced battle happened over the holiday break at the park on Grand Concourse, police said. The year-old sister tried to intervene, according to police and a witness, but she was held back by the older teens.
