Nail salon workers in Brooklyn, New York, wouldn’t let one woman and her granddaughter leave their place of business once they refused to pay for a “f*cked up” eyebrow service, attacking the pair with broomsticks and dustpans while being filmed by other patrons.
The New York Post reports the incident took place at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush. Video taken from Facebook shows the brawl, with the woman filming, Mercy Maduka, describing the incident:
“So I’m at the nail salon and they f*cked up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke outttt…Hitting them like animals 🤦🏾♀️.”

Cops soon arrived, arresting a salon worker and one of the patrons involved in the Friday night scuffle. Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault and weapon possession and was later released on her own recognizance. Customer Christina Thomas was booked on misdemeanor assault and other charges. She was also released on her own recognizance.
