SAN PEDRO — An arrest warrant has been issued for a woman sought for beating a 12-year-old girl in San Pedro, police said Thursday.
Lindsay Heredia, 29, is charged with willful cruelty to a child in connection with the Jan. 14 fight in an alley in the 1300 block of West Gaffey Street, police said.
A tip from a reader from the Facebook site, South Bay Crime & Courts, helped police identify Heredia. Heredia is known to frequent Wilmington.
Heredia is suspected in the same fight as Amber Lynn Gutierrez, 33, who was previously charged with assault. Gutierrez's daughter and another girl, both students at Dana Middle School, had arranged to fight there, police said. Gutierrez joined her daughter, along with the girls aunt. Each took part in the fight and assaulted the other girl, police said.
The girl suspect in the case was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of battery. The case will be presented to the District Attorney's Office's Juvenile Division.
The fight was recorded on video and broadcast by KTLA news.
