Salon staff beat customer with brooms after she refuses to pay

Salon staff beat customer with brooms after she refuses to pay

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.

"She said she didn't like it and doesn't want to pay for nothing", Lin is quoted as saying.

Footage captures the workers as they crowd around a customer and smack her with a broom handle at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush, Brooklyn.

The n0w-viral video shows a nail salon in chaos - a loose flip-flop on the floor, manicure stations pushed roughly to the side. Things got physical when employees blocked the women from leaving the store while waiting for police to arrive.

According to Pix 11, Zhing faces charges of misdemeanor menacing, misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon and harassment, while Thomas faces charges of misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor menacing and harassment. She was also released on her own recognizance, the Post reports.

The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands.

A spokesperson for the Brooklyn district attorney's office says they are in the process of examining all of the evidence, including videos that were not available at the time of the arraignments. The women were dissatisfied with the service from the salon and ultimately, refused to pay $5 for a "f**ked up" eyebrow job.

"There is no respect for people in this neighborhood", Gavin Gibbs, a 49-year-old East Flatbush resident, said to the New York Daily News. Several people held signs stating "Black $$$ matters" and chanted "black dollars matter". They also claim one protester screamed, "where is ICE?"
