EAST PRICE HILL (FOX19) - A massive East Price Hill fight was caught on camera last week and now one of the victims involved is sharing her story.

"I had bruises on my back and a couple scratches on my face," said Me'Shaun Harper. Harper says last Friday she was walking with a friend near the intersection of Purcell and Glenway when she spotted neighbors arguing.

She claims the arguing neighbors turned their attention to her and began taunting and threatening her. Harper and her friend claim they started to leave and that's when they were attacked.

"They're fighting for fun. There's nothing for these kids or anybody else to do so everybody is just fighting for fun now," said Shaunterria Clark, Harper's sister.

Multiple women were involved in the fight and the video was uploaded to Facebook. Now police are getting involved and Harper has filed an official report.

Police tell FOX19 they only received one call regarding the brawl, but Clark claims at least three calls were made.

Harper's sister wasn't there when it happened, but she says she's disgusted that no one called for help sooner.

"Instead of being adults or good citizens and picking up the phone and calling the police you pick up your phone and you video record it and upload it to social media to get a few likes or to get popularity and not realizing that somebody could actually be hurt behind this," said Clark.

Harpers injuries are minor and she's doing fine, but she says these kinds of fights are happening far too often in Cincinnati, especially among teenage girls.

Police say if any charges are filed, it can vary depending on the severity of the injuries. They say it could be anywhere from a simple assault to disorderly conduct.
