A 40-year-old man who tried to exit a Kmart in Queensland’s Australia Fair shopping centre with a trolley of ‘dangerous toys’, has been charged
‘If I bring up concerns about the item it should be removed from the shelf for duty of care,’ the man told staff.
Officers then appear to surround the man, with the 40-year-old continuing to proclaim his views to the shoppers at the Gold Coast outlet.
‘Sorry to inconvenience you, I have only the best intentions for your children and for the benefit of everybody and man kind,’ the man said.
‘It’s these people and their hierarchy, who don’t care about us.’
The customer had allegedly been trying to remove the items – an series of roller skates – around 11am Thursday after stating he had brought up concerns about them that were ignored
Another shopper, who was in the Kmart store at the time and filmed the incident, said that the manager had approached the man as he tried to leave and he became aggressive (stock image)
Christopher Hiesler, who was in the store at the time and filmed the incident, said that the manager had approached the man as he tried to leave.
‘(The man) was protesting that this product for sale was too dangerous and killing kids and that the labels has had just been switched out,’ Mr Hiesler told Yahoo 7.
‘He was doing this across the road from the biggest police station in the Gold Coast… I don’t know what his plan was.’
A Queensland Police spokesman confirmed to Daily Mail Australia officers were called to the store following the disturbance, with the man ‘protesting loudly’ over the roller skates.
He was later charged with causing a public nuisance and will appear in Southport Magistrate’s Court on December 8.
