A woman injured in a fight with three other women near Saluda River earlier this month said a large crowd stood by and did nothing during the incident.
The video, which reportedly took place next to the Saluda River in Columbia, South Carolina, on March 15 shows three young women punching, hitting and scratching their 20-year-old victim.
Arlinda Craft, 18, Anns Leigh Hill, 19, and Megan Williams, 20, were arrested and charged with second-degree assault and battery by a mob for allegedly attacking a woman on March 15 by the banks of the Saluda River.
The Columbia Police Department was able to make the arrest thanks to a video of the incident, which shows three women in bikinis jumping on top of the victim and striking her repeatedly on the face and body.
The victim, who lost consciousness during the fight, was treated for a number of injuries including lacerations and a concussion according to police.
“No one defended me, out of the 30 people that were hanging around — which is really pathetic in my eyes,” the victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, told The State.
According to Jennifer Timmons, a spokeswoman for the Columbia Police Department, “possible additional charges are being evaluated” for the three suspects.
The victim suffered a concussion and a broken nose, she said.
“They paid their bond and they are out roaming the streets as we speak,” she said.
