Mother's face stomped with cleats in brawl at youth soccer game

The kicking got out of hand at a youth soccer game in North Carolina.

A young mother says she was attacked by a 15-year-old girl in a brawl that broke out at a soccer game over a referee’s call.

Karin Villeda told NBC Charlotte she was stomped and punched by the girl right in front of her four-year-old son at Elon Park in Ballantyne, N.C.

“The girl kicked me twice with her cleats on my face,” Villeda said. “They kicked me on my chest.”

Villeda also had two of her fingers wrapped after two of her nails were ripped off. Doctors told her they might not grow back.

The brawl escalated when the teenage girl allegedly started to go after Villeda’s aunt. Villeda tried to break the two apart and says she started hitting the girl out of “self-defense.”

After this, the teenage girl’s family got involved and about 20 people were a part of the big fight.

“When they kicked me in my face, they could have just killed me right there,” says Villeda. “Sucks that we have to go through this over a soccer game.”

Villeda added that she wants the whole soccer team arrested because they were all involved in the scuffle.
