Netizens are outraged following reports in the Chinese media about a 10-year-old girl who was locked up and slapped brutally all because she was believed to have stolen a colouring book.

Apparently this incident took place recently at a supermarket in Sibu, Sarawak.

According to reports, a female employee allegedly saw the girl shoplifting a colouring book and stopper her.

She then handed the child to the duty supervisor and left for home about 5pm.

The child was allegedly then brought to the storeroom where she was asked to sweep the floor as a punishment.

When she tried to escape, the supervisor allegedly slapped here and even used a hanger to beat her - causing a tooth to fall out.

After almost two and a half hours, the child was allowed to leave with a broken tooth, swollen left eye and leg.

When she returned home, her grandmother was shocked and called her father who then rushed home.

The father then took the child to the police station and following a report, the cops took the child back to the supermarket.

They, they discovered some blood stains, believed to be from the child.

The supervisor has since been remanded pending investigations and also asked to undergo a urine test.

Netizens meanwhile have expressed anger over the incident, while others have questioned why the little girl was allowed to go the supermarket alone in the first place.
