Jeff Hardcastle, a fifty-one-year-old man, attacked two children in a Target store in California. He punched a five-year-old boy in the face and attacked another eleven-year-old kid. The five-year-old boy was knocked off his feet.

There is footage that shows the two children in the video games division when Hardcastle appeared and attacked them both.

Once he hit the eleven-year-old kid, he went to the five-year-old and hit him in the face, causing the boy to fly across the aisle.

One of the people who was passing by, ran to the child and caught him for one arm and one leg, and managed to pull the kid away from the fifty-one-year-old attacker.

The behavior of Hardcastle implies that he was on drugs, police informed.

The video footage showed him wandering up and down the aisles.

Shortly after the incident, the police cornered him behind an electric box outside the store.

Local residents are horrified by the attack and say that they would not be able to hold themselves back from fighting the man.

The San Joaquin County district attorney imprisoned Hardcastle after he declared no engagement to the assault; he denied punching the kids and causing them injuries.

He was pleaded guilty to a violent robbery committed in 2008.


Child abuse is a terrible thing to happen. Children are never at fault because an adult decided to be violent and injure them.

If your child was injured anyhow, you have the right to seek compensation. Laws are on your side, and you can file a lawsuit and get the compensation you deserve and put the attacker behind bars.
