Warning: This story contains graphic images.

On Saturday night, Mercedes Enriquez, 5, and her mother were at Peter Piper Pizza when Mercedes was bitten by another child while fighting over an arcade game. 

Mercedes's mother, Casandra Enriquez, says the young girl has been hospitalized due to an infection, but will hopefully be released Thursday. Mercedes received two stitches while in Cardon's Children Medical Center. 

Casandra confronted the other child's parent but failed to receive an apology.

Chandler police say because of the children's ages, the incident was not a crime.
