2 teenage girls charged in videotaped assault

NORWOOD, Ohio - Two Norwood Middle School students face charges stemming from a fight in a locker room that was videotaped and posted on the Internet.

School officials in this Cincinnati suburb say a 13-year-old eighth grader attacked a 12-year-old seventh grader while another 13-year-old girl videotaped the attack.

The video, which shows a girl attacking another girl while a voice off-camera says, "Get her, get her," was shot after school on Sept. 20 and was posted on YouTube.com the following day, officials said.

"It started over me being accused of dirty looks, and then the next day me being cornered in a bathroom and being beat up," Katelind Lewis, who recently turned 13, told the CBS Early Show yesterday.

Her parents and the school have been unsuccessful in removing the video from the site.

The alleged attacker has been charged with assault, and the girl who did the videotaping has been charged with complicity to assault. Both were suspended from school for five days.
