VIDEO: Mother beats woman in brawl over parking spot

VALLEY STREAM, NY -- There is disturbing new video of a parking lot brawl in Valley Stream, Long Island.

With her husband and children watching, a mother viciously beat another woman over a parking spot.

Her husband can be heard egging her on.

Somehow how some way this brawl between two women started because of an argument over a parking space.

One woman was trying to park in an empty spot, but a man was standing in it, holding it for someone else.

She parked in another spot, then got into an argument about what happened. That's when the punches and hair pulling started.

"All this for a parking space. Oh my God," said Chad Radway, a shopper. "That's crazy. Where's the mall cop? Why did nobody say stop?"

Nassau County police confirm there was a fight over a parking spot at the Green Acres mall Sunday afternoon.

This video later surfaced, and now investigators are trying to confirm if it's the same thing.

Shoppers can't believe people just watched and recorded the violent exchange.

"Kids watching and nobody even trying to stop it. There's too much violence right now," said Larry Ellis, a shopper.

A senior manager at the mall said, "We strive to provide an enjoyable and safe shopping environment for our guests and employees at all times at Green Acres."

One shopper put things into perspective about this Long Island community and its residents.

"This is not representative of our entire culture. It is unfortunate that this is happening. No one has stepped in to stop it," said Sophia Buxton, a shopper.

Police say the woman who was thrown to the ground suffered minor injuries to her face but refused medical attention.

There's no word yet on if anyone will be charged in Valley Stream.
