Limassol police on Sunday arrested a 35-year-old foreign woman in connection with neglecting a child under the age of two and exposing it to danger.
In fact the woman had gone to work leaving at home all three of her children – aged 13, seven and a 23-month-old toddler.
The case came to light after a stranger saw her seven-year-old daughter playing all by herself at a park in Omonia area and took her home. The stranger informed the police.
The mother is scheduled to appear before court on Monday, while the Welfare Department has intervened.
