Brooklyn Family Attacked With Acetone And Brooms By Nail Salon Workers

In video of the incident, two workers smacked the customers with broomsticks as they ran out the door. Police later arrived on the scene to arrest two of the salon's employees. A nail salon employee was arrested after she was caught on camera repeatedly attacking a customer with a broom. Nail salon worker Li Lin claims that Thomas punched and slapped her in the face, and dragged her on the floor, causing lacerations to the face and substantial neck pain.

The incident occurred after a customer complained about her $5 eyebrow service Friday. Lin said he still wanted Moses and her grandmother to pay for those, but they said they already had. She was released on her own recognizance after a hearing at Brooklyn Criminal Court, according to the Post.

Thomas faces charges of misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor menacing and harassment, police said.

Several Asian women in smocks grab at a black woman, trying to get a grip on the straps of her tank top.

According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS2 that altercation could have easily been avoided. "I said, 'Sit down, let me call the police".

Customer Mercy Maduka who shot the video shared it with the caption: "So I'm at the nail salon and they [expletive] up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke outttt Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them‼️‼️ 1426 Nostrand ave Hitting them like animals ‍♀️".
