A Facebook user named Erika Burch posted pictures of a man pushing a shopping cart with one hand clutching a handful of his five-year-old daughter's hair, forcing her to bend over as she walks.

According to Erika Burch, she confronted the man but was told to mind her own business. Police say the child was being disciplined for misbehaving. They are meeting with the family and child protective services are also looking into the incident.
