Officers had gone to the salon to arrest a second employee, but that worker was not there at the time.
"Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them". Zheng was charged with assault and weapon possession and was later released following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court, police said.
Employee Huiyue Zheng, 32, and customer Christina Thomas, 21, were busted for a variety of charges including misdemeanor assault, harassment and menacing.
She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals".

There is a man holding one of the women as the workers attack at the New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush. "I would give them a -1 if I could", Jude Watson wrote. Surveillance footage obtained by the New York Daily News and other media outlets begins in the middle of the confrontation, when a woman in a manicurist's smock is already pointing what looks like a broom handle at two black women. "Only recommendation I have is to close it!" Do not waste your money here.
The Post adds that some demonstrators chanted, "shut them down", "f-k the police" and "no nails, no toes, these racist shops have got to go". "If you pay for a service and you don't like a service, it's a $5 eyebrow".
One woman explained to the Times that the racial tensions underlying the incident had motivated the local community to come out in force: "The black community has been pushed aside for generations, and it just seems as if the longer time goes on, the more people think we're simply going to go away", said Alexis Regnier, a 33-year-old health worker from Midwood. Instead of making a compromise or including a 3rd party (police) to mediate they attacked them.
About 100 protesters were outside of the nail salon on Monday, NBC New York reports.
