A brutal attack at a Georgia Little Caesars has gone viral on the internet as police continue to search for a suspect they believe was involved in the bloody battery.
What are the details?
The suspect, 25-year-old Brittany Kennedy, is accused of brutalizing a fellow Little Caesars patron on Monday, reportedly leaving the victim bruised and bloodied.
Augusta police responded to the scene just after 4 p.m. local time for a fight in progress.
Authorities at the Richmond County Sheriff's Office said that Kennedy reportedly confronted the victim, 22-year-old Emily Broadwater, while the two were at the restaurant and yanked a chair out from underneath the victim.
The viral video picks up as the suspect grabs Broadwater by the head and hair and repeatedly punches her. A young child immediately runs over and attempts to help her mother as someone screams, "Move the baby! Move the baby!"

Employees can be seen standing behind the counter observing the beatdown while patrons rush to get the small child out of harm's way. After pulling the child from the fracas, employees and bystanders step back and let the attack unfold without intervening. As the attack continues, at least one bystander even opens the door so the suspect could successfully drag the victim out of the store.
The video continues and shows the suspect dragging the victim by the hair out of the eatery's front door and onto the concrete outside. The suspect continues punching the victim as she holds her by a handful of hair and stomps on her head no less than two times before leaving the premises.
Broadwater, whose blood is freely streaming down her face at this point, is able to get to her feet and cries "My baby!" as she heads back toward the restaurant.
The Richmond County Sheriff's Office shared a wanted poster featuring Kennedy's picture on Tuesday.
In a statement, Little Caesars
said, "The safety of our crew members and customers is the most important thing to us. In any case where a customer or employee is in danger, we advise our crew members to call the police immediately."
A deputy's report, which was obtained by Augusta Crime, detailed some of Broadwater's injuries, which included cuts, bruises, and more.
"I observed that the victim had a swollen and black left eye," the deputy wrote in the report. "Her bottom lip had a large laceration on the inside and was severely swollen. She had a large knot on her forehead, and multiple cuts on her head, face, and neck. She did not lose consciousness."
It is unclear at the time of this reporting what prompted the brutal assault on the young woman.
