A fight broke out at the Newport Mall in Jersey City, NJ among those not in the holiday spirit.

Video showed security guards at Jersey City’s Newport Centre Mall trying to separate at least two people who were beating each other near the Kiko Milano cosmetics shop. The mall’s Santa — and a line of kids eager to meet him — were also nearby.

“I just seen a bunch of flying fist, and I seen the security guards getting punched and anyone that was in the way getting punched,” a shopper, who only identified herself as Larissa, told the Jersey Journal


This is the second holiday-themed brawl the Newport Centre Mall has seen this year.

In March, the mall’s Easter Bunny and several shoppers waiting in line to meet him started fighting.
