The Criminal Investigations Department is investigating a video depicting a dangerous scenario of children causing harm to another child.

ACP Waqa says the video is extremely concerning and the investigation will be carried out to establish the truth.

He is urging parents and guardians to be vigilant to what their children are watching or accessing, as the behaviour is typical of observational learning, whereby children learn by watching others in any form.

ACP Waqa says children may think it is fun without realizing the threats and anxiety it creates to members of the public.
