JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- A mall Easter bunny and a father who got into a scuffle in New Jersey have both been charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.

Jersey City police announced the charges Monday, one day after videos of the brawl were posted on social media.

Authorities say 44-year-old Juan Jimenez-Guerrero verbally and physically attacked 22-year-old Kassim Charles, who was playing the role of the Easter bunny. That came after Jimenez-Guerrero's year-old child slipped from a chair while getting her photo taken.

Both men were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. They were being held in the county jail, and it wasn't known if either man has retained an attorney.

Authorities say both men also had outstanding warrants.
