CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A Chesterfield woman is recovering after a brutal attack captured on cell phone video at the Waffle House on Midlothian Turnpike. Police said the incident happened during the early hours of March 8.

"They approached us as soon as we walked through the door," Rekeeta Squire said. Squire said two unknown women attacked her and her friend after first asking about a relationship with a man.

"I said, 'What's the problem?' She said, 'I give you a problem. I built like this, I do this, I'm about this life,'" Squire explained. "After that she just swung."

Cell phone video captured more than three minutes of the two-on-two fist fight. Portions of the video show the victims' hair being yanked and her head being slammed into the restaurant's window. Another part of the video shows one of the women delivering brutal gut punches.

After the confrontation finally ended, Squire drove herself to the hospital after suffering a concussion and back injury.

"Blacking out, blood running down my nose, nobody help me. Waffle House people recording it, didn't help," Squire said. "Nobody, nobody came on the scene. Nobody tried to stop it. Everybody was laughing."

"I was like, 'How could someone do this? What kind of animals are these," Rekeeta's mother, Regina Squire, asked.
