A mother and father from Peekskill are facing charges after they allegedly made their daughters beat up another girl.

Police say 25-year-old Samuel Randolph and 26-year-old Latena Fitzgerald confronted a 10-year-old girl who had gotten into a fight with their daughter at the Kiley Center in Peekskill earlier in the day.

Fitzgerald allegedly held the girl while she and Randolph ordered their two daughters to assault her.

Police say Randolph then threw a chair at the victim after the incident was broken up by staff members.

Both Randolph and Fitzgerald were arraigned in Peekskill City Court on charges of endangering the welfare of a child. Child Protective Services was notified and is assisting in the investigation.
