Shoppers at a mall in New Jersey this weekend witnessed the moment a fight broke out between the shopping centre's Easter bunny and members of the public.

The incident was caught on camera by onlooker Kevin Pineda, whose videos of the fight have been retweeted more than a thousand times.

Kevin told the Washington Post: "I was just at the mall eating on the third floor when me and a couple of friends heard commotion going on downstairs, like yelling."

"We looked down and a woman was attacking the man in the bunny suit and then the rest is in the video."

 Several more people appear to have got involved in the brawl, which took place at around 7pm on Sunday evening at the Newport Mall in Jersey City.

“Oh, the Easter bunny throwing hands!” one onlooker can be heard saying. “Oh, he curb stomped him!”

A number of security guards rushed in to break up the melee.

A spokesman for the shopping centre told New Jersey 101.5 that the incident took place on the first level of the mall.

No further information has been released as yet, and it is not known whether any of those involved in the fight will facace criminal charges.
