JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

In cell phone video given to WLBT, a Jackson teenage girl fights to defend herself punch after punch and kick after kick, according to her aunt.  

A number of people can be seen standing by watching the brawl before it's broken up.

"Anytime you run up behind someone and three of you pull someone to the ground and beat them bloody and takes someone to actually pull up and stop you to make you run, it's ridiculous. My niece's shirt was full of blood," said the aunt.

She asked that WLBT conceal her identity.

The aunt says the fight started because the accused bullies said her niece was spreading rumors about them. So, they decided to jump the Wingfield High School student before she jumped them.

The guardian says the attack happened Wednesday while the teen was walking home from school.

"They (the accused attackers) both need to go to jail with their parents, absolutely they need to go to jail together. I tried to talk to them in the past. The parents' response was, I don't care they're out of control. I can't do nothing with them," said the aunt.

Her niece has bruises on her face and scratches on her arm.

These type of fights are nothing new in her neighborhood.

"You have people coming around to my house, with guns, for children's stuff that could've been stopped," said the aunt.

The lady says another child was beat up Thursday just a few houses down from hers.

An affidavit was filed with JPD, according to the aunt.

She believes one of the girls seen throwing punches in the video has been arrested but another is still on the run.

"If she doesn't want to go to school, she needs to be in jail somewhere. It's crazy," said the aunt.

The guardian has spoken with Wingfield High School about the problem. However, the fight did not occur on school grounds.
