Little Caesars issues statement after employees and bystanders watch brutal attack, only rescue toddler

Cops are on the lookout for a woman who allegedly administered a beatdown to another female at a Georgia pizza parlor.

In a video that has gone viral, the alleged assailant grabs the victim by the hair and delivers blow after blow. She is then seen dragging the victim outside the Little Caesars restaurant in Augusta, Ga., and kicking her in the head several times.

Perhaps even more disturbing, a toddler briefly gets involved, but a bystander shouts “Move the baby; move the baby,” and the child is pulled out of harm’s way.

In the footage posted by Twitter user @cristjdiaz, the victim’s face is bloodied after the brawl ends.

The social media user also called out other customers and staff for purportedly failing to intervene to stop the fight.

Store surveillance video also reportedly exists of the melee, which the eatery is turning over to law enforcement as the investigation continues.

According to a police report, the victim was left with a swollen and black eye, a knot on her forehead, a swollen and cut lip, and multiple cuts on her head, face, and neck.

The victim received EMS treatment at the scene, but declined transport to a hospital.

The Richmond County, Ga, Sheriff’s Office has issued a wanted poster for the suspect in the late Monday afternoon incident who authorities identified as Brittany Kennedy, 25, and requested help from the community in locating the suspect.

Kennedy, who drove off in a Kia sedan after the incident, is wanted for assault.

Local media has identified the victim as Emily Broadwater, 22, and she has told cops that she intends to prosecute.

According to ABC Augusta affiliate WJBF, News Channel 6, the source of the fight — which started when the aggressor allegedly pulled a chair out from under the victim and sent her to the floor after a brief conversation —  might have been connected to a domestic issue of some kind.

“The story caught massive attention on Facebook, alleged posts from both Broadwater and Kennedy reveal the fight was over children and their father, starting at a home and ending at Little Caesars,” the station explained.

Sadly over the years, an increasing number of fast-food freak-outs or meltdowns have occurred, which get quickly shared on social media platforms. Usually, however, the hostilities emerge between employee and customer, typically — but not always — involving a patron who is “hangry.”

That appears not to be the situation at all in this extremely disturbing Augusta incident.

In the aftermath of this encounter, Little Caesars issued a statement that “The safety of our crew members and customers is the most important thing to us. In any case where a customer or employee is in danger, we advise our crew members to call the police immediately.”
