The Polk County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released a disturbing video that shows two teenage girls fighting. Deputies say the video also shows a woman coaching one of the girls during the brawl.
Giselle Reyes Felix, 36, is accused of instigating a fight between the girls. She was arrested on charges of Child Abuse and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
Neither girl was seriously injured during the fight, which happened on Nov. 29.
According to an arrest affidavit, Reyes Felix drove a 16-year-old girl to the area of where a 17-year-old girl lived in Kissimmee, because of problems between the two teens.
The 17-year-old victim was walking home from school when she heard a car horn and saw a car quickly approaching her. The 16-year-old suspect yelled at the victim and then attacked her, according to the affidavit.
Deputies say while the two girls were fighting, Reyes Felix, the , was coaching the suspect on what to .
When the victim fell on her back, the 16-year-old stomped on her head multiple times with her feet. A Good Samaritan was able to stop the fight temporarily, but deputies say Felix encouraged the 16-year-old to again attack the other girl.
The 16-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with Battery.
“Our adult suspect was supposed to be responsible for the 16-year-old girl. Instead, she not only drove the girl to the victim, but she also incited and encouraged a fight, and coached the girl on how to hit the victim. This was totally irresponsible,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
The identities of the two girls have not been released.
