An Australian man is facing charges of aggravated assault for allegedly using cable ties to restrain three children.

The incident occurred in Broome, Western Australia, where the man reportedly found the children swimming on a vacant property.

Videos circulated online show the children tied up and crying, prompting widespread concern.

While the man claims he found them in an unoccupied pool, police found the force used to restrain the children disproportionate given their age and vulnerability.

The state’s children’s commissioner expressed alarm at the footage, emphasizing the children’s inability to understand consequences.

The man has been granted bail and will appear in court later this month.

This incident sheds light on broader issues of Indigenous children’s vulnerability and the need for understanding in handling such cases.
