Looks staged, I would'nt wrestle the guy. I would have sent him to the dentist in search of some new teeth. Being inappropriate with a young child does'nt just have to be touching, words can hurt, harm, mess up a child.
When my 27 yr old daughter was 12 and played little league. We stopped a store for sodas, she was in line beside two men about my same age. One was drunk on his arse, one was within reason. I was next to my daughter when the drunk guy starts in on her with how cute she looks in her little uniform, I asked him to watch what he said to her and he did'nt listen.
I turned to the lesser intoxicated of the two, told his friend that this man is getting ready to tote an arse-whooping if he did'nt shut his mouth. The store ckerk even said for him to shut up to my daughter, he did not listen to reason.
As my daughter went out the door, the mouthy one said something to her, she waited as I came out and said that man asked where we live and that he wanted to *&*^%$$#@@ her. End result of this was I beat the absoulute shat out of this man right then and there. I dared his damn friend to interfere, I told the friend that when this piece of shat wakes up let him know WHY he got his tail beat. Then seek me out because my daughter needed an apology.
I and my daughter & son got in the car went to the game as normal. The following week this guy actually showed up at one of my daughter games and approached me ( with his daughter about 18 months or two yrs). and his wife. He first apologised ro me then my son and then my daughter. He told me flat out. He deserved the arse whooping he got. Alcohol was to blame, or was the excuse used at the time. I have never seen these folks ever again.
Sorry I got long winded just this post reminded me of that event. I guess what I'm saying is , some parents let stuff slide thinking their doing the right thing. Keeping such things as seeing grown men beat each other around the gas pumps. Then you have parents like me. When my kids were young, if my child got hurt, I bleed.
If a person touches your child with you right there, imagine if you were'nt? So I say, open up a can of old fashion whoop arse on him. Ramifications for ones actions.....that's life.

This reminds me of a situation the other day. I was waiting at a seafood shop for my takeaway order when I noticed a small girl trying to climb up onto a high stool. Her mother was nearby chatting away to a friend and kept saying to the little girl "wait for mummy". The girl made it halfway up and looked like she was about to fall down and I was tempted to go catch her and help her up onto the stool but decided not to. An older female who was a little closer decided to do just that and the mother thanked her.
Considering there are people with mindsets like the OP, it's a good thing I did not do anything.
