After two 11-year-old girls got into a fight at a bus stop last week, the cops say the four older sisters of one of the girls came to join in on the action.

As shown on a video surveillance tape released last night by the Broward Sheriff's Office, the four sisters hopped onboard when the bus stopped on NW Fifth Avenue in Oakland Park on its way to a Fort Lauderdale middle school.

Cynthia Haynes, 23, made it past the bus driver and attacked two girls, ages 11 and 14, police say.

Neither of the girls was seriously injured, and Haynes was arrested on two counts of child abuse as well as burglary, for getting onto the bus.

Her 11-year-old sister has been charged with battery and disrupting a school function, police say, and the other three sisters -- one 18 years old and the other two juveniles -- were charged with disrupting a school function.
