LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Police Department has cited three teenagers in connection to a beating at a Louisville skate park.

The altercation took place on Monday evening at Louisville Extreme Park on Franklin Street, according to an unidentified mother. She told WAVE 3 News it began when she witnessed a young man climb on top of her parked car and bash the roof in. She and her son, 15, had been at the park for about an hour and were planning to leave at the time.

The attack was all caught on cell phone video.

In the video, it appears the mother and her son were punched, knocked down and hit in the face and head by several young men. LMPD confirmed late Thursday that two teenage females, 16 and 14, and one juvenile male, 17, have been cited for the assault.

"I would love jail time. A lot of it," the mother said after being informed of the development. "It would at least bring me and mine a peace of mind to know that they are off the streets for a while."

Each of the three juveniles will face two charges of assault and one count of criminal mischief, according to LMPD.

The investigation is ongoing.
