PHILADELPHIA -

Cameras were rolling inside a North Philadelphia takeout store early Saturday morning as three women attacked Vitia Wilson, leaving her battered and bruised and her hair literally ripped out at the roots.

"I have two black eyes, my lip was busted open at the bottom, my hair was pulled out to the scalp and I have some scarring right here," Wilson, speaking exclusively to FOX 29, said.

The 30-year-old is a mother of four. She told FOX 29 she stopped at the Lucky Cuisine takeout store after a night out with her cousin. An argument over a cell phone turned into a full fledged brawl with Wilson getting kicked and stomped by at least three women.

"They just all start bum rushing me," she explained. "I'm on the ground, they're kicking me, stomping me. I'm trying to cover my face and defend myself, kicking back, trying to get them back off of me."

The beat down left Wilson with two black eyes, scars on her face and a good portion of her braided hair ripped away. Someone video taped the fight on a cell phone and posted it on Facebook. But store surveillance cameras also recorded the melee as late night customers scattered, but kept taking pictures. No one helped Wilson.

Northwest Detectives have opened an investigation into the brawl. Wilson wants her attackers caught and prosecuted.

"I want justice. I want these girls to be locked up. I want to be able to go to court and press charges against them so something can happen, 'cause this has gotta' stop," she said.

The store owner did not want to comment. Wilson says her female attackers were 23 or 24-years-old and were accompanied by their mother.

Police are reviewing surveillance video of the beating.
