Bullies ‘force children aged 11 to lick dog poo off shoes’ in sick challenge
Two bullies allegedly forced young boys to lick dog poo off shoes in a series of forfeits.
The yobs are said to have ordered their 11-year-old victims to take off their coats and footwear as they rifled through their bags.
They allegedly made them carry out a series of forfeits, including licking the shoes and using racist language, Wales Online reports.
Police are investigating the incident in Whitchurch Library Park, Cardiff, on Saturday afternoon. They have stepped up patrols in the area.
One parent said the youngsters were so scared they "froze" and didn't know what to do.
The alleged behaviour only came to an end when other parents who were in the park with younger children intervened and took pictures of the apparent culprits.
A mum who confronted the pair said: "I could see the group of boys looking upset so I went over to check on them.
"The older pair ran off and the younger one told me what had happened. They said the pair had threatened to take their bikes if they didn't do what they ordered them to do.
"When I went to confront them and ask for the money back that they had taken one of them stuck his finger up at me. They were just horrible, nasty bullies."
A mum whose son was targeted said that her child woke up scared in the middle of the night after the incident in the park.
She said: "He rang me from the park to say he was scared and I got in the car and went up straightaway.
"It is awful because he says he is scared to go out and doesn't feel safe anymore. He said they were almost too scared to think and just froze. There was about 11 of them and they all stayed together but it was a terrifying experience."
Local police inspector Darren Grady said: “Anyone who lives in Whitchurch will no doubt be shocked by events on Saturday afternoon in what is a safe and family-friendly park.
“This is an isolated incident and an investigation is being carried out.
“In addition to the investigation, there will be increased high-visibility policing to reassurance the community and if anyone does have concerns we would ask them to approach patrolling officers.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
