IN a shocking video, a mom was dragged out of a Little Caesars by her hair and stamped on in front of her child while screaming “my baby.”
Police are on the hunt for a Georgia woman after she was caught on video brutally beating a young mother in a Little Caesars before dragging her by her hair and stomping on her head.
Brittany Kennedy, 25, is wanted for battery over the attack on 22-year-old Emily Broadwater in the Little Caesars in Augusta on Monday afternoon.
Police said they were still searching for Kennedy as of Wednesday morning.
Authorities say the ordeal broke out after Kennedy allegedly confronted the victim inside the restaurant and pulled a chair out from underneath her.
Footage of the fight, which quickly went viral on social media, shows Kennedy grabbing Broadwater by her hair and punching her repeatedly in the face.
At one point, the victim’s toddler daughter rushed over and tried to help her mother as she was being beaten.
A Little Caesars employee grabbed the child as a bystander could be heard screaming: ‘Move the baby. Move the baby.’
Kennedy then dragged Broadwater by her hair out of the restaurant before throwing her to the ground and repeatedly stomping on her head.
After the attack ended, Broadwater – whose face was covered in blood – could be heard screaming out for her daughter.
Police said Kennedy left the scene in her car following the attack and they released a wanted poster for her on Tuesday.
Officers said they had reviewed witness videos and surveillance footage from inside the restaurant.
No one, including witnesses or employees, was captured on video trying to break up the fight.
