2 accused in videotaped restaurant beating in Md.

Police say two people are accused of severely beating a woman at a fast-food restaurant in Maryland.

A videotape of the attack at a McDonald's was posted online, and the company issued a statement Friday condemning the violence.

Baltimore County police say a 14-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile in the attack and charges are pending against an 18-year-old woman.

Police say officers who responded to the McDonald's on Monday found a 22-year-old woman who appeared to be having a seizure. Witnesses told police she had been beaten.

The videotape posted online shows a woman being attacked repeatedly while an employee tries to intervene.
