Cleveland Police are investigating an attack on a 10-year-old girl as a hate crime, and the attack was captured on video and posted on-line.

It happened on Leeila Avenue off Bellaire Road on the west side.

A video posted on YouTube shows a white girl on a scooter ambushed and beaten by a black girl. The beating went on for about 12 seconds until you hear voices in the background calling for it to stop.

A Cleveland Police report shows the attacker is 13 years old. The victim, Danielle Fair, says she felt bullied.

A neighbor says she saw it all, and she heard the attacker use a racial slur. 

"Cracker. She called her a cracker," said Jessica Jaworski.

The attack looked planned, with the camera rolling even before the beating even started.

We went to the home of the teen throwing punches.

"Nobody was waiting. I don't have to talk to you. It'll all come out in court," a woman at the door told 19 Action News. 

The victim's mom and dad want justice. They say their daughter never said anything to provoke the beating. Dad says he even tried talking to the other girl's grandfather instead of calling police.

But now, a First District Detective is working the case. Hate crime or not, it's a vicious attack.
