Radio NZ reports:
Hamilton police found four children aged 7, 10, 11 and 12 holding stolen toys at the scene of a break-in at a shopping centre last night, with one of the children injuring themselves in an attempt to get away.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the four children holding stolen toys and other goods.
McBeath said the 11-year-old ran off after seeing police, but was not chased by officers who stayed with the other three remaining youths.
But while fleeing, the boy fell about 8 metres to the ground, injuring his arm. He was soon found by police and taken to hospital in an ambulance.
So four kids were out at 1 am breaking into shops and robbing them. It is impossible this was done without the parents knowing about it, or just not caring. The parents should be charged.
