A young girl was slapped on the face by an unknown woman in Newbury

The four-year-old was with her mother when she was attacked at around 11.15am on August 7 at the Parkway car park.

      Yeah, maybe however it's going to be one hell of a situation where a 4 year old gets assaulted by an adult is going to be in any way justified

        All I'm saying is kids these days grow up very quickly and the child was perhaps being threatening or abusive

          "All I'm saying is kids these days grow up very quickly and the child was perhaps being threatening or abusive" - get a grip of yourself you clown, trying to justify some idiots actions, a four year old being threatening or abusive to the point some random decides to slap em? Zero justification.

          I've seen numerous 5 year olds who look like they are 20 due to the internet warping their mind so maybe the lady was mistaken. If not she should go to jail
