BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Police are searching for a group of teenage girls that assaulted and robbed another girl in broad daylight Tuesday afternoon.

Disturbing cell phone video shows the girls attacking the 15-year-old for no apparent reason.

The victim was at the skating rink with her friends at Brooklyn Bridge Park when they took the skates off to get something to eat.

That's when witnesses say the group of teens stepped in and began attacking her. They allegedly stole her cell phone and MetroCard.

A witness who tried to intervene was also assaulted.

The victim's mother said the teen has a fractured nose and bruises to her face. Her mother does not want her to be identified.
