Newly surfaced video showed a pair of males attacking and beating a young girl in Brooklyn, police said.
The NYPD on Wednesday said it had arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the attack. The boy has been charged with assault and reckless endangerment, according to police.
Cops claim the onslaught happened back on Dec. 18 around 8 p.m. in the area of Nostrand Avenue and Avenue Y in Sheepshead Bay. Police said the duo threw a backpack at the 11-year-old girl, sprayed water in her face and threw a plastic bottle at her before punching in the head several times.

Police hadn't arrested the second suspect as of Wednesday afternoon.
