In a bizarre incident a dad beat up two boys who believed had bullied his son in a child’s playground.
The incident occurred in the city of Krasnodar in south-western Russia’s Krasnodar Krai region and was captured on camera before being posted online.
The 34-year-old, who is not named, walked towards to the group of children, before targeting a small boy that has his arms folded across his chest.
The dad hit hard on the child face with an open hand before gripping him by the head and throwing him to the ground.

When the first child hits the ground he pushes a second child, wearing a hoodie, in the chest and shouts at the other boys, who cower away from him, before he turns his attention back to the child lying on the ground.
Again, the dad strikes the child on the floor and continues shouting until two other adults intervene.
Olga, the mother of one of the attacked boys, said the incident involved nine-year-old children and was sparked by a petty row between the youngsters.
‘Initially the confrontation happened between the boys,’ she said. ‘My 9-year-old son Ratmir and his pal Timur were out on the playground, when one of the neighboring boys approached them’.

Olga said that the boys started picking on Ratmir and Timur and throwing food around.
She further added that her son ‘shooed’ the boy away, but after few moments his furious dad came over and hit Ratmir in the face with the palm of his hand.
She said that her son son got terrified and laid still on the floor until the attack finished then ran home as fast as he could.
She said he is no longer sleeping well at night and is scared to go back to the play area.
She has reported the incident to the police, who have confirmed they are investigating.
