AUGUSTA, GA – A Georgia woman is wanted by authorities in connection with the brutal assault of a mother on Monday at a Little Caesars restaurant in Augusta, with the entire incident caught on video showing multiple onlookers doing nothing to help, according to reports.
The suspect, identified as Brittany Kennedy, 25, who is Black, in wanted for battery after a now-viral bystander video posted on Twitter allegedly showed attacking a victim, Emily Broadwater, 22, who is White, by holding her hair while repeatedly punching her in the face. At one point in the video, a little girl – presumably Broadwater’s daughter – attempts to cover the victim, but was quickly pulled away by people at the scene saying, “Move the baby! Move the baby!”
Kennedy was then allegedly seen pulling Broadwater outside by her hair, where she began to stomp on her head on the sidewalk. Kennedy then fled the scene in a car, while Broadwater – her face covered in blood – lifted her head up and cried “My baby!”
