According to police, the two women came to blows over a parking space Sunday, reported News 12 Long Island.
The 49-year-old victim tried to park at the Valley Stream mall but then noticed that a man was holding a spot for someone else, presumably his wife.
The driver moved on and parked elsewhere, but as she made her way towards the mall entrance, the 49-year-old had an exchange with the woman who had taken her original parking space.
What started as a verbal dispute quickly turned physical and was captured on cellphone video.
The footage shows a heavyset woman dressed in jeans and a short orange tank top hurling her 49-year-old adversary to the ground, pinning her down and repeatedly punching her in the face.
The attacker’s husband then pipes up, egging his wife on while holding a small child in his arms.
'My wife is gonna beat her a**!' he cries out. 'Yeah, baby, bust her face!'
When a boy tries to intervene, yelling, 'Mom, stop it!' he is told by another woman, 'respect your elders.'
After repeatedly striking the 49-year-old woman in the face on the ground, the married mother pulls her up by the hair and the scuffle continues next to a row of parked cars.

All the while, a group of bystanders watch the beat-down from the sidelines without making any effort to stop it.
Eventually, the two women are pulled apart and the attacker walks away.
Before taking his leave, the pugilist's husband offers the victim some parting words of wisdom: 'You got knocked on you face for running your f***ing mouth. Now go home, Brooklyn style b****.'
The unidentified victim suffered minor injuries to her face but refused medical attention.
The quick-tempered wife and mother insisted to the station PIX11 that she was the real victim, and that her adversary attacked her first.
As of Wednesday morning, no arrests have been made in connection to the fight.
