Police were called after a 'brawl' erupted between a group of teenagers at a shopping centre.
Officers were called to Bluewater, in Greenhithe, earlier today after reports that a fight broke out.
It happened outside Wagamama's restaurant on the upper level of the plaza, and one boy allegedly had a glass bottle in his hand.
One mother who witnessed the incident said her nine-year-old daughter was pushed by one of the teens and that she had to push her own son out of the way.
She wrote on Facebook: "Today at Bluewater a fight broke out between a group of teenage boys just outside Wagamamas.
"In the brawl my nine-year-old daughter was pushed by one of the teens whilst I had to shove my son out the way before another boy was floored next to him.
"I’m absolutely disgusted with the danger these stupid teenage boys caused to both themselves and others around.
"One of the boys had a glass bottle. This is a serious matter with intentions to permanently hurt someone.
"Speaking to nearby restaurant staff apparently this is a regular weekend occurrence.
"I’m appalled with what was meant to be a nice family day out for us, ended with my daughter in tears and my five-year-old son frightened.
"One security guard came after a few moments and after five to 10 minutes a couple of others came along."
The woman continued, claiming that only one of the boys were caught and that she was "serious appalled".
Spokesman for Bluewater Jo Reason said: "We are aware of an incident which took place earlier today. As this is a police matter all enquiries should be directed to Kent Police."
Police have been contacted for further information.
More as we get it.
