Woman surrenders in videotaped S. Jersey beatdown

Posted: July 02, 2014

FOR A WEEK, few people who follow the Philly region's news didn't know Latia Harris - her mug shot was featured in the papers and on TV.

Last night, Harris, 25, ended her week in the spotlight when she turned herself in to cops in Salem, N.J., in connection with a savage beating in the Salem County seat, police said.

In grainy cellphone footage that went viral, a woman alleged to be Harris brutally attacked Catherine Ferreira, 27, pummeling her with her fists as Ferreira's 2-year-old son looked on.

Harris allegedly attacked the woman over a work-related feud, pausing only to threaten to punch the little boy.

Harris has been charged with aggravated assault and two counts of terroristic threats, a law-enforcement source said. Her bail was set at $35,000.
