A video of a man beating a child after he fell from his stroller sparked outrage in Saudi Arabia as relevant authorities ordered the arrest of the man.
The incident happened in a mall in Khobar, east of Saudi Arabia.
Deputy Governor of the Eastern Province Prince Ahmad bin Fhad directed security forces to quickly detain the perpetrator and to transfer him to the public prosecution’s office for interrogation.
The Ministry of Labor and Social Development also interacted with the video and called on anyone who has any information about the identity of the man to communicate with it.
“Laws apply against anyone who harms or jeopardizes the safety of a child,” the ministry’s spokesperson Khaled Aba Al-Khail said on Twitter.
