A physical altercation in Brooklyn on Monday, between a Jewish teacher and an African-American teenager, led to both of the women being arrested

Sara Mina Setton, a teacher at the Beis Rivkah High School in Brooklyn, reportedly punched the teenager after she threw a glass bottle inside Brower Park in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood.

Before police arrived on the scene, racial slurs were exchanged between a group of African-Americans supporting the teenager and Ms. Setton, whose father was also with her at the time, according to CrownHeights.info.

Ms. Setton was arrested first, which drew a cheer from those who stood in support of the teenager, according to witnesses at the scene, and in the following minutes, the teenager was also arrested.
