EAST WILLIAMSBURG — A hammer-wielding woman set upon some skateboarders shooting a noisy video near her apartment but end up getting nailed, police said.
Wenting Gu, 30, confronted the group of skaters about 3:40 p.m. on Oct. 10 near Morgan and Johnson avenues, telling them to pipe down.
When they refused, she fetched a hammer from her home then tried to yank the camera off one female skater's neck, police said.
Continuing on her attack, Gu grabbed an 18-year-old woman's hair and dragged her across the street and throttled her, authorities said.
“Don’t you wish you left now?” Gu asked the woman, police said.
In the struggle, one of the boarders, Kabrina Adams, 23, got a hold of the hammer and hit Gu with it several times on her back, police said.
Police arrested Gu and Adams following the brawl.
A law enforcement source said that police couldn't determine who was the original aggressor in the incident but said that they had cell phone video of Gu pulling the victim by the hair and a second video of Adams hitting Gu with the hammer on the back surrounded by a group of around five skaters.
Gu and the woman she allegedly attacked were in pain and bruised after the brawl, police said.
Gu was charged with assault, harassment, weapons possession and is due back in court on Dec. 7, according to court records. Adams, 23, was given a Desk Appearance Ticket and released.
