A raw clip of a 'Black Friday' altercation involving tasers has gone viral online

Raw footage of a fight in Franklin Mills Mall in Northeast Philadelphia appears to show the use of stun guns. "

The video shows two women in a physical brawl while onlookers shout for them to stop, before blue sparks are seen, at which point onlookers rush to pull the two women apart.

Mall General manager John Ahle told NBC Philadelphia:

"An isolated incident occurred in the early morning hours between two female shoppers, that was quickly stopped by our security team, and both women were escorted out of the mall," he said in the statement. "We are committed to the safety of our shoppers, retailers and employees and will not tolerate this unacceptable behaviour".

The incident happened around 2.30 am during an 18 hour 'Black Friday' sale.

Shoppers have been caught brawling on camera before over popular products or sales. Recently, a video went viral of a group of people involved in a physical altercation over the last copy of the new Grand Theft Auto game.
