    A third teenage girl has been arrested in connection with an online video of two young girls being forced to fight in a Bronx park in January, police said.

    The 14-year-old girl was arrested Friday night after two other girls, 14 and 15, were also arrested earlier in the day. All three have been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Officials said a fourth teen was also being questioned.

    The video was originally posted on YouTube and then on the website Gothamist. It shows two children, who are 6 and 7, being urged to slap and hit one another, while older people in the background jeer and egg them on.
