Silver Springs – Two suspects who have been accused of attacking multiple people — including an 11-year-old girl — were arrested Thursday.
According to reports, Julia Napiontek and Brandon Clanton, both 18, attacked four people — ages 11, 55, 47, and 48 in the parking lot of Forest Corners Circle K.
Surveillance video showed that Napiontek punched the 11-year-old in her face.
The other victims also sustained injuries to their face.
As deputies attempted to take Clanton into custody, he assaulted a deputy.
Clanton was charged with Battery and Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer.
According to authorities, this is not Clanton’s first time attacking someone at a store. Clanton was charged with Aggravated Child Abuse on September 13, after he struck a 17-year-old in the face.
Napiontek was charged with Battery and Aggravated Child Abuse.
Authorities said Napiontek tried to use the excuse of self-defense, however, surveillance video and witness statements proved otherwise.
Napiontek has since bonded out of jail.
Their motive is unknown at this time.
On social media, the suspects say that the victims “had it coming”.
