Play park under fire for calling police over 5 year olds

Austrian police were called to step in to settle a row at a children's birthday party when it staff at the Wiener Kinderfreunde refused to allow a mum to give her kids a birthday cake because she hadn't asked for permission in advance.

The staff management rather than simply allowing the woman and the three children to eat the cake without having made an appointment argued with her for more than an hour and when she refused to back down they called the police – causing the children to burst into tears.

The incident happened at the indoor playing area at Schuhmeierplatz when mum Abdel-Rahmen was told that in order to celebrate a birthday party they needed to book one of the special rooms. As these were all full she offered to let the kids eat the cake in the rooms outside where it was also possible to eat – but only with a reservation.

She said: "I did not even have any candles or presence or anything else – it was just a small cake."

But the head of the indoor play park Roman Kostrouch said: "There is no celebrations allowed except in the approved party rooms."
