    Police have arrested two sisters in connection with a Black Friday assault inside a Maryland Victoria's Secret.

    An Arnold, Md., teenager reported two women attacked her inside the store at the Westfield Annapolis mall around 12:40 a.m. Nov. 29, police said.

    The 17-year-old told police one of the women approached her and accused her of having assaulted her. The teenager told police she had never seen either of the women, but one punched her in the head several times and pushed her to the ground and a second jumped on top of her and also threw punches.

    Using tips from the public and video surveillance from the store, police identified the suspects as 18-year-old Antonia Ash and 31-year-old Ebonie Brooks, both of Clinton, Md.

    Both sisters have been charged with first degree assault, second degree assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and affray.

    Police say a YouTube video of the assault has amassed over 130,000 views.
