Police in southern New Jersey are looking for a woman who was videotaped beating a mother in front of the victim's toddler.

The video shows the woman pummeling the mother in the face and kicking her in the back along a trail in Salem on Tuesday night as bystanders watch. The suspect is also heard threatening to attack the victim's 2-year-old son, who kicked the suspect's legs.

Police Chief John Pelura III said Thursday they are searching for 25-year-old Latia Harris. Pelura says authorities had an address for Harris but she was not there. Police obtained the video before it was removed from Facebook.

Pelura says the victim told officers a woman named Tia who works at McDonald's accused her of spreading rumors about her and her manager.
