A fast-food worker in full uniform viciously attacked a young mother in front of the victim’s young son and the entire attack was caught on tape.

The attack happened Tuesday in the city of Salem, New Jersey and video of the assault was later posted on Facebook.

The suspect has been identified by the Salem City Police Department as 25-year-old Latia Harris. When apprehended, Salem City Police Chief John Pelura, III says Harris faces charges of aggravated assault and two counts of terroristic threats.

The victim falls to the ground and while on the ground, the suspect punches the victim approximately 20 times.

As the attack is going on, the victim’s toddler son is seen pleading for the suspect to stop and tries to kick the suspect in an attempt to make her stop.

At one point during the video, the suspect can be heard saying: “You better get your son before I kick him in the face too!”

At the end of the video, the suspect appears to spit on the victim as she lays helplessly on the ground.
