Three teenage girls were arrested Tuesday on charges that they punched and kicked another girl and recorded the beating so they could broadcast it online.

Police did not release their names because they were being charged as juveniles. Two are 14, and one is 13.

Police in Long Island's Suffolk County said the video showed the three girls beating a 13-year-old girl Dec. 18 at a school.  The video was shown on two Web sites.

The beaten girl wasn't hospitalized and didn't tell her parents, police said.

The three girls were arrested on charges of juvenile delinquency and attempted assault.

Police were investigating who taped the incident.
