Police seek mother in Web video

Fresno police are searching for a woman who allegedly encouraged her daughter to fight another girl -- a battle that was videotaped and ended up on MySpace.com.

The District Attorney's Office has given police a warrant to arrest Syreeta Fuller, 30, the mother of a 14-year-old girl involved in the fight.

Fresno police Capt. Keith Foster said Friday that officers are searching for Fuller.

The fight between the 14-year-old and a 13-year-old girl occurred near Cooper Middle School in northwest Fresno on April 19.

The fight drew national attention after the video appeared on the Internet. School officials reported receiving national media inquiries, including calls from cable news channel CNN.

The girls were not arrested; they were disciplined by school officials.

Once arrested, Fuller will be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child endangerment and battery -- all misdemeanors. The battery count stems from "evidence that she held one of the girls down while the girl was being beaten," Foster said.

In a related matter, police continued to search for two men who allegedly brandished an assault rifle when the parents of the 13-year-old went to the home of the 14-year-old to talk to her parents.

Officers received warrants June 8 to arrest Jayson Sanderson, 22, and Aaron Moore, 20. Moore is wanted on a charge of illegal possession of a firearm and participating in criminal street-gang activity. Once arrested, his bail is expected to be $270,000. Sanderson is wanted on a charge of participating in criminal street-gang activity. His bail is expected to be $50,000.
