EL PASO, TX - A fight between two groups of girls broke out at Sunland Park Mall Tuesday.
In a video posted on Facebook by ABC-7 Viewer Destiny Reianne, five girls are seen punching and pulling each other's hair while security guards try to break up the fight.
Within the first couple of seconds, two girls are seen punching and pulling another girl's hair as two security guards are working to break up the fight. Another girl is seen trying to pull security guards away and is then seen walking a short distance away and pulling the hair of another girl. After about 30 seconds, three security guards are able to isolate the five young girls involved.
"I was surprised, I know there's a lot of fights going on everywhere else in the rest on the world, but I didn't think it would happen here in El Paso," Destiny Valdez, who witnessed the fight, said.
Just this week, fights broke out at least a dozen malls across the country in states like Illinois, Arizona and North Carolina. The fights happened Monday at the same time or within hours of each other, prompting police to believe it may have had something to do with social media. Valdez however, doesn't believe this fight was part of the "trend."
"No, this one has a story behind it I could tell, because it wasn't as big as the other ones," Valdez said.
