Community Members Call For Brooklyn Nail Salon To Close Following Brawl

One of the workers in denim shorts starts to hit the customer repeatedly with a broomstick.

As the New York Post reports, employees at the New Red Apple Nail salon in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East Flatbush attacked customers with brooms after one of the women allegedly complained about her botched eyebrow wax. 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.

Police later charged Huiyue Zheng, 32 of Brooklyn, with assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harrassment. Both she and the salon's owners agree that she wasn't happy with how the eyebrow wax turned out.

"That happens a lot, they're not supposed to fight like that, for both sides that is totally wrong", a representative from the association said.

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.
