A 9 Year old boy was allegedly beaten and locked in a cage by supermarket staff at a local IGA in Perth.
A number of social media posts surfaced on the December 30 & 31st which allege the 9 year old was knocked around, dragged and locked in a cage at the back of Kelmscott IGA Express in Perth. During the ordeal which allegedly happened behind locked doors; the boy received a wound to his head and cuts to his feet and arms.

We will update this story when we hear more developments from the family, media and police…
