Be careful at public play areas!

This is just a reminder to be careful at public play areas. A mama on my online playgroup had her DD assaulted at a McDonald's play area by a homeless man that was hiding up in the tube part of the play area. She was hit in the head and he tried to pull down her pants but she is ok now. He didn't actually do any physical damage but a bump to the head. She is 4 though and was sleeping beside her parents bed for quite a while!

I think that I might be going through the play areas now before I let my DD go up there!

OMG! How scary for that little one....

I think there would be a homeless man in the hospital if it happened to my kiddos (mama bear sighting!!).

Wow. Thank goodness she wasn't injured badly. How badly was the guy injured? If that was us, he would have suffered a serious beatdown from DH.

Yes, he was arrested. She was there with her 2 kids, so no beatdowns from her DH.

Supposedly, McDonalds is going to be putting cameras in that playspace now.

Re: Be careful at public play areas!

So scary!!

A friend of mine was at the McD's playland a few years ago and a 3 year old little girl that she was watching was up in the tubes when she started screaming bloody murder. My friend (8 months pregnant) went up into the tubes and found her pinned down by a 7 year old boy who was beating the crap out of her. The mom of the little boy just said "sorry about that" and continued to let the boy play until the manager forced them to leave!

As if that wasn't bad enough, the little girls parents were out of town and couldn't make it back for another 24 hours. So, she was completely traumatized and didn't have her mom and dad there to comfort her!
