Customers attacked with brooms after dispute over botched $5 eyebrow wax

Customers attacked with brooms after dispute over botched $5 eyebrow wax

Police attended the scene and arrested a salon worker along with one of the customers on Friday night - however it remains unclear as to which one.

It shows the salon staff also targeting another customer who is helping her granddaughter to escape the clutches of the staff members and start beating her in the back.

Video posted on Facebook shows a portion of the knock-down, drag-out brawl at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush. It's hard to tell who instigated the violence, but it appears to be the workers at the nail salon who are dealing the most force. Another woman can be seen held back by a male employee.

Huiyue Zheng faces charges of assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, according to court documents. She was released as well.

The Post adds that some demonstrators chanted, "shut them down", "f-k the police" and "no nails, no toes, these racist shops have got to go".

The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands. The video has so far been viewed more than 720,000 times. The young lady paid for her feet/nails but refused to pay for her eyebrows because she was unsatisfied. Customer Christina Thomas was booked on misdemeanor assault and other charges.

Officials have confirmed that six people, including two firefighters and a woman and her two great-grandchildren, have died. If all goes well, we'll have the fire tied in at the top of Cow Mountain by the end of shift (Sunday) or early Monday.

Zhing was hospitalized with visible injuries to her face and body, and Thomas refused medical attention, according to police.

"I'm not trying to die on my bday or go to jail", she wrote.

Calls to close a Brooklyn nail salon are growing louder Monday, days after video was shared online apparently capturing employees attacking patrons with brooms, dust pans and, allegedly, acetone.

Meanwhile, the Facebook page for New Red Apple Nail salon has been flooded with negative reviews and backlash over the incident.

The incident has inflamed racial tensions, and prompted calls for black residents to spend their money elsewhere.

"There is no respect for people in this neighborhood", said 49-year-old Gavin Gibbs, a neighborhood resident, the New York Daily News reported. They also claim one protester screamed, "where is ICE?"
