Two Detroit women were stabbed on Sunday after a fight broke out over a parking spot. During the altercation, a crowd cheered and took videos with their phones.
According to The Blaze, dozens of onlookers laughed and cheered and posted videos of the fight to Facebook. The video does not show the stabbing itself, but it shows the moments leading up to it. One woman was ultimately transported to the hospital and listed in stable condition. The other drove away from the scene.
The video is below. Content warning: disturbing violence.
Sixth Precinct Commander Aric Tosqui told The Detroit News that he condemns the onlookers for encouraging the situation. “It’s unfortunate that we as a society find entertainment in these kind of things. ...In this case, people got hurt while everyone else stood around and filmed it instead of doing something.”
On Monday, police arrested two women, aged 21 and 22, in connection with the double stabbing, according to The Detroit News.
