Peekskill couple accused of attacking 10-year-old girl

A Peekskill couple is under arrest for allegedly attacking a 10-year-old girl at the Kiley Youth Center.

Latena Fitzgerald and her boyfriend, Samuel Randolph, were arrested yesterday.

Police say the couple's daughter got into a fight at the center?s playground earlier in the day, and the couple decided to take matters into their own hands.

According to police, Fitzgerald held the 10-year-old down so her twin 7-year-old girls could beat her up. Police say Randolph threw a chair at the girl during the fight.

Randolph reportedly works at the youth center; the status of his job is now unclear. Police say they will continue to investigate the incident.
