A woman was filmed violently beating and stamping on a young mother’s head inside a pizzeria and is now being hunted by police.
Brittany Kennedy, 25, is wanted for battery over the shocking attack in Little Caesars in Augusta, Georgia, on Monday afternoon.
The confrontation between Kennedy and 22-year-old Emily Broadwater was caught on camera by another customer and posted on Twitter.
The clip shows an aggressive woman, allegedly Kennedy, pulling Broadwater by her hair, punching her repeatedly in the face and even stamping on her head. A bloodied Broadwater can then be seen rising to her feet looking dazed and confused after her attacker finally stops her assault.

According to the police the ordeal broke out after Kennedy allegedly confronted her victim inside the restaurant and pulled a chair out from underneath her.
Footage of the fight went viral on social media and at one point in the footage, the victim’s toddler daughter rushes over and tries help her mother as she is being beaten.
A Little Caesars employee grabbed the child as an onlooker says ‘Move the baby. Move the baby’.
After the attack ended, Broadwater – covered in blood – could be heard screaming out for her daughter.
The victim was left with cuts to her face, head and neck but reportedly refused to be taken to hospital.
Police have not said what sparked the fight but the victim has since claimed on social media that she had previously watched Kennedy’s children while she was in jail for an unknown offense.

‘All I did was help a friend out with his kids while his baby mama was locked up. She has been harassing me for weeks now’, Broadwater said.
She added: ‘All I’m saying is that I never caused any harm to her or her property or her children like she had mine. Now imma go back to living my life and taking care of my daughter.’
Police said Kennedy left the scene in her car following the attack and they released a wanted poster for her on Tuesday.
No one, including witnesses or employees, was captured on video trying to break up the fight.
Little Caesars issued a statement in the aftermath, saying: ‘The safety of our crew members and customers is the most important thing to us.
‘In any case where a customer or employee is in danger, we advise our crew members to call the police immediately.’
