BRIDGEPORT - Police are investigating a violent encounter at a bus station that was captured on camera in Bridgeport.

Authorities say that a fight broke out between three women at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the bus station on John Street.

Witnesses say two women started attacking a 14-year-old girl. A video taken by a witness appears to show one woman kicking the girl repeatedly.
