A disturbing video showing kid-on-kid fighting has sparked a police investigation as authorities try to identify two adults in the footage who appear to watch without attempting to break it up, one even egging them on.
Two boys can be seen kicking, punching and even chocking each other while the adult shooting it and at least one other looks on.
One of the adults can be heard encouraging the violence, advising them to remain on the grassy area and directing them to ‘get off the ground, Charlie’.
Violent: The two boys can be seen punching one and other
Overlooked: They fall to the ground and continue to wrestle, rolling around and throwing punches
The boys only stop when another child intervenes to break up the fight.
Still the adults do nothing.
The video, entitled ‘My nephew messed him up for picking on his home boy’, was reported by NBCalong with an image of it posted on the Facebook page of Agustin Gamboa, a graduate of Chatsworth High School in San Fernando, Los Angeles.
Next to this picture of Gamboa and his two kids someone has written ‘too cute.. you get them Saturday?’
One of Gamboa’s Facebook pictures is of him drinking from a Bacardi miniature (left) another freaky one taken by a webcam is captioned ‘im bored’ (right)
When the Mail Online went to check it had been removed.
Gamboa’s most recent public activity on Facebook was watching a violent video entitled ‘DAMMNNN!’ using an app called ‘Viddy’.
In it a large white man runs at full pelt at a slight black man, leaping up in the air and kicking him hard in the chest.
Escape attempt: The boy in white takes a swipe ad the shirt-less boy as he appears to try to get away
Reaction: Some of the watching kids have their hands covering their mouths, as if in shock
The victim is thrown to the ground while the thug’s two friends watch and cheer, calling out ‘get that n*****, get that n*****’.
Other posts include a close up of him drinking from a miniature Bacardi bottle and a status in which he writes ‘feel like laying someone out’.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department launched an investigation after someone found the video and reported it to officials who said it appeared the kids were being ‘provoked by an adult’.

Vicious: The man in white kicks the other man square in the chest and they both fall to the ground
Remorse?: The attacker goes to check on his victim as he lies motionless on the ground
‘What’s most disturbing is that there are adults nearby that are not stopping it,’ department spokesperson Cindy Bachman.
‘The adults that are seen in the video are not setting any kind of example for these children.’
The department has asked that anyone with information calls in.
