Woman (23) arrested for child neglect

A 23-year-old mother of two little boys, aged four and two, was arrested for child neglect by the Katlehong Police at Vosloorus Extension 20 on Tuesday, May 9.

Communications official at Katlehong Police Station, Capt Mega Ndobe, said the police went to the address and found two little boys, aged four and two, alone inside a shack.

“Police waited, hoping that the mother would return,” said Ndobe.

When she did not come back, the police took the two children to a nearby clinic for a check-up.

“The 23-year-old mother was arrested on Tuesday, May 9, in the morning at the shack where the children were found.

“She will be charged with child neglect,” said Ndobe.

He said the woman did not bother to report to the police station, even after arriving at home and finding that her children were missing.

“At the moment the children are being kept in a place of safety. The mother is expected to appear in court soon,” Ndobe said.

The police are still investigating the matter.
