Security robots at a shopping centre in Silicon Valley have been taken off duty after one of them ran over a toddler.

His mother told ABC News the robot had hit her son’s head, “he fell down on the floor, and the robot did not stop”.

The 16-month-old, Harwin Cheng, was left with swelling to his right foot.

The robot’s developer, Californian start-up Knightscope, apologised for the “freakish accident” and invited the family to visit its Mountain View headquarters.
