Shocking video of a fight in Hartford ends up on YouTube

Posted: Updated:

A YoutTube video showing a fight between two Hartford women has city leaders looking for constructive ways to address violence.

In a video shot by a camera phone, the women are outside of two buildings at 222 S. Marshall St. and one man even tries to break up the fight. According to neighbors, the fight started after one woman threatened to kick the other's pit bull if it bit her.

The most disturbing part of the video is when a child kicks one of the women in the head. 

Mayor Pedro Segarra was upset with the footage. 

"I do not want to shock people to try to get them to move and to move that moral compass," he said.

Segarra said he plans to work with churches and other community groups to address the issue of violence in the city in a very constructive way.

The Hartford Police Department is investigating the incident and two warrants are pending as well as a juvenile summons for child in the video.

The video was first found by a Hartford-based blog known as "We The People."
