A Kosher supermarket in Brooklyn found its way into a heap of trouble when a gigantic fight erupted over one girl on a hoverboard.
Gary Schlesinger, a witness to the entire event, said that Julissa Soto, 24, was told by store employees to stop riding a hoverboard in the market. Julissa later told DNAinfo that it was her nephew who was actually told to stop riding on the board.
Next, police said that two of the store managers, Abraham Spielman, 21, and Mattis Edelstein, 29, took things to another level. According to police reports, Edelstein allegedly hurled a peach at Julissa, while Spielman tackled her to the floor.
This is where Mark Soto, Julissa’s father, stepped in and the altercation escalated. According to Mark, he believed that the management threw a can of Coke at his daughter. Mark was called to his daughter’s aid and the entire incident escalated rather quickly.
In the video, Mark can be seen pushing the store employee and punching him in the face. He continues to hit the employee and backs him into a corner while shouting, “I'll f***ing kill you.”
Eventually a family member gets a hold of Mark and forces him out of the store. Mark believed he was simply defending his daughter, who was physically assaulted by the store management.
After police officers arrived on the scene, the manager who allegedly threw the peach was charged with felony assault.
However, Schlesinger believes something very different happened. He claimed in a Facebook post that the manager was falsely accused of throwing the fruit and the employees were innocent.
