This has happened to me a few times and I am always at a loss as to what to do. What do you ladies do when you are out somewhere where there are other children (the park or McDonalds etc) and another kid misbehaves towards your kid? Do you directly reprimand the kid? Do you go to the parent?
Here are my two examples that happened to me - my son is 20 months old and pretty meek:
At the park, my son has a few sand toys and an older kid he doesn't know walks up, takes a toy from him, and starts to walk away with it. No moms around, no idea who mom is or if she saw what happened but nobody spoke up to reprimand the kid so I am guessing mom was not paying any attention.
At McDonalds Playland, a slightly bigger kid walks up to my kid, they look at each other for a minute, and the kid punches my kid in the head for no apparent reason. Mom is in a corner on her cellphone, not watching at all.
