Mom: Daughter beaten, robbed at Brooklyn Bridge Park

The mother of a 15-year-old Flatbush girl who was beaten and robbed by a group of girls in Brooklyn Bridge Park is seeking to press charges, she announced at a press conference.



The incident was captured on cellphone video on Tuesday at Pier 2.



The assailants can be seen knocking the girl to the ground as they kicked her in her in the head before stealing her cellphone, according to the victim's mother Genae Simpson, who showed News 12 video of the attack.



Simpson says her daughter had gone to the park to take part in a public roller skating session for children announced to run from noon to 6 p.m.



Simpson says she rushed her daughter to the hospital with a swollen nose, bruises, headaches and a "slight fracture."



Police confirm that there was an incident at the park, but they say there were no complaints made or injuries reported from the scene.



Simpson says she is seeking to press charges against the girls.



Police say no arrests have been made.
