The customer said she paid something, but the store's owner said she refused to pay any of the money she owed.

Video of the attack was posted to social media and prompted protests outside the salon on Monday.

That same night, a woman named Mercy Maduka posted video footage of the fight on Facebook.

She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals". After the group refused the $5 fee for the service, employees blocked the entrance and held down one of the women. A bystander not involved in the brawl took the video. It is unclear which party started the fight. In it, the nail salon workers get into a fight with two customers.
