"She said she didn't like it and doesn't want to pay for nothing", Lin is quoted as saying. A man held another woman and would not let her go as the women continued their assault against her too.

The staff then turn their attention to a group in the corner in the corner shouting: "That's my grandmother!"

As the first woman returns with company, the staff put their broomsticks down but the argument continues.

The video shows a portion of the brawl at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Ave, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Mercy was a customer waiting as the chaos unfolded - and the reason why it began is unbelievable.

A Brooklyn nail salon owner treated a black customer like an "animal" by pounding her with a broomstick after she refused to pay for her services. "She went to the owner, she addressed the owner, says, 'Michael look at my eyebrows.' He said, 'I'll fix it for you.' She said, 'You can't fix it, call the cops, '" she said.

Mother of missing Iowa woman believes she may be held captive
Her family and friends are posting flyers, talking to people and doing media interviews to spread awareness about the 20-year-old. Investigators say they have concluded that a woman spotted in northwest Missouri was not a missing Iowa college student.

Police arrested a salon worker Huiyue Zheng, 32, and one of the customers named Christina Thomas. She was released as well.

But these ladies were not the only ones caught being violent on camera recently.

The video was posted on Facebook by another buyer who was inside the shop during the mayhem.

Calls to close a Brooklyn nail salon are growing louder Monday, days after video was shared online apparently capturing employees attacking patrons with brooms, dust pans and, allegedly, acetone.

Thomas was arrested on misdemeanour assault and other charges and was also released without bail, Daily Mail quoted New York Post report. The protesters were holding signs that read "Black $$$ Matters" and were chanting "black dollars matter", the news station reports.

One woman explained to the Times that the racial tensions underlying the incident had motivated the local community to come out in force: "The black community has been pushed aside for generations, and it just seems as if the longer time goes on, the more people think we're simply going to go away", said Alexis Regnier, a 33-year-old health worker from Midwood. The service is below standards and they lack respect for people of color.
