Some children struggle to believe in the Easter Bunny, and this probably won't help.

A costumed bunny at a mall in Jersey City, N.J. ended up in a fight Sunday with a dad whose one-year-old daughter had slipped from a chair during photos, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill told the Associated Press.

The dad, 44-year-old Juan Jimenez-Guerrero, verbally and physically attacked 22-year-old Kassim Charles after the girl slipped, Morrill said.

Both men are facing aggravated assault and disorderly conduct charges, and were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Onlooker Kevin Pineda posted video of the brawl to Twitter, telling the Washington Post that he was on the third floor of the mall when he heard yelling below.

In one of the videos, Charles, wearing the bottom half of his costume, can be seen trading punches with multiple mall patrons.

He works for a photography company called Noerr Programs, according to NJ.com.

The company said in a statement that it was investigating and would take action if needed.

"The safety of guests and cast members is of utmost importance to the Noerr Programs, which operates and manages the Easter Bunny photo program."

Charles won't work for the rest of the Easter promotion, the company said. However, now the other, invisible Easter Bunnies will have to work a lot harder to gain back kids' trust.
