The three friends - Taylor McFadden, 18; Tatum Bohanon, 19, and Alexandria "Allie" DeRusso, 19 – told NJ.com that a car was waiting for their parking spot close to the Deptford Mall entrance, but that they weren't ready to leave.

The girls think that’s what angered the women, who, at first, walked by their car with two men, and then returned and attacked them, McFadden said.

She told NJ.com that one of the women hit Bohannon and the other woman punched DeRusso.

"Both of my friends were on the ground at this point, getting punched," McFadden told NJ.com. "I jumped out of the passenger side and I grabbed my phone so that I could call the police. People started coming over, but I think a lot of people were scared to get involved," she said.

When it was over, all three girls were treated at a local hospital.
