Man Charged After Allegedly Locking Young Boy In Supermarket
A 41-year-old man has been charged after he allegedly locked a child in a cage at a supermarket.
A police investigation was launched after a series of Facebook posts last month that claimed a nine-year-old boy had been injured while caged at the back of a store in Kelmscott, Perth.
The man who allegedly locked the child in the cage, is believed to be an employee of the IGA supermarket.
He has now been summonsed to appear in court on charges of aggravated common assault and deprivation of liberty, according to police.
Facebook posts showed the young boy looking upset and clutching his hands to his mouth, with several large bandaids on.
The posts goes on to allege that the family had to break the windows of the IGA to gain entry to the premises.
It also alleged that he was dragged, knocked around and detained in a cage at the rear of the supermarket.
