VIDEO circulating on Twitter purports to show alleged Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse punching a young girl after getting into an argument.
The "leaked video" footage of the teen -who is suspected of killing two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin – was shared to Twitter on Saturday and has since obtained more than 662,000 views.
The clip was published by Twitter user anoncatanoncat and claims to show a person identified on social media as Rittenhouse repeatedly punching a woman in the midst of a fist fight.
Along with the video, the tweet read: "Kyle Rittenhouse, seen here in this video taken on July 1st, repeatedly punching a female with no provocation or evidence of self-defense. #Kenosha #KenoshaShooter."
According to the footage, the woman appears to get punched in the back of head.
Social media users who have watched the video have noticed that the teen boy who punched the young woman was wearing American flag crocs.
The crocs are allegedly the same shoes the Kenosha shooting suspect Rittenhouse is wearing in a viral photo of him holding an assault rifle.
There was no independent confirmation that the person in the video was Rittenhouse.
When the teen, believed to be Rittenhouse, gets involved in the fight, the witnesses taping the incident are heard saying: "He punching a b***h. He jumping that b***h."
In the second part of the footage, a witness gets out of a car and intervenes.
"Don’t put your hands on a female," someone can be heard saying during the fight.
It is unclear how the video leaked to Twitter or if authorities were called to the scene.
Rittenhouse is suspected to have shot at protesters who had been demonstrating against the shooting of Jacob Blake.
Police arrested Rittenhouse for first-degree murder as he is allegedly responsible for the deaths of Joseph D. Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26.
A third man, Gaige P. Grosskreutz, was shot in the arm but is expected to survive.
Photos of Rittenhouse walking the streets of Wisconsin with an AR-15 weapon have circulated on Twitter.
On Wednesday, the 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, was arrested and charged with first degree intentional homicide.
