Posted: Updated:

A vicious assault on an Oakland hair stylist was caught on camera and is now being investigated by the Oakland police department, reports KTVU.

The video shows women kicking and beating Melissa Seals, who was convinced by family members to go to the police a month after the incident.

Seals was busy with a customer when six women entered the salon and two of them commenced to attack her, reports the San Francisco Examiner. One of the six women reportedly videotaped the beating and posted it on YouTube.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Seals' mother wants the assailants to go to jail.

The victim, 35-year-old Melissa Seals, was "held her against her will, imprisoned in her own shop," said her mother, Delois Seals today.

"They stole all of her merchandise, and they raised the blinds so everybody walking by could see what they were doing."
