"Police responded to the 2700 block of Martingale Road for a report of a fight in progress," a Chesterfield Police spokeswoman said. "Upon investigation, it was determined that two juvenile females, both age 13, had been involved in a fight. Williams, who was related to one of the juveniles, became involved in the fight, striking the other juvenile female."

Martinez, who is related to the other 13-year-old girl, also became involved in the fight, according to police.

"I did not hit that child," Williams said when asked about the incident Tuesday night. "As I stated [to police], I separated the two of them."

A person who witnessed the fight shared a video that showed parts of the fight. Other people who live in the apartment complex where the brawl took place said there was more to the story, but did not want to go on camera to explain.

"There's several people on me, my hair gets pulled," she said.

Williams said Martinez is the grandmother of the other girl and hit her sister.
