BELL, Calif. (KABC) -- Three women have been arrested in connection to a shocking video that allegedly shows them attacking a driver's car and smashing its windows, police say.

According to the Bell Police Department, Maritza Vega and Evelyn Lopez - who are both 19 years old - and 20-year-old Joceline Vega, are facing several charges related to the attack, including assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism, and child endangerment.

The incident happened on Thursday, March 24, near the 4600 block of Florence Avenue.

Video shows three women jumping out of their vehicle and attacking a driver's car, which was reportedly intentionally hit by one of the suspects moments before. One woman began to strike the car with an object, destroying the car's windshield.

Police tell Eyewitness News the child of Joceline Vega was sitting in the back seat of the car during the entire attack.

Lopez and Maritza Vega turned themselves in on Saturday, police said. Joceline Vega was detained at her home and was later arrested.

All three were booked into jail, but have since been released from custody on bond.
