Hong Kong mother arrested for allegedly abandoning daughter at playground

A 31-year-old mother has been arrested for allegedly abandoning her daughter at a Hong Kong playground.

Police detained the woman on Saturday after receiving a report the previous night over a two-year-old girl found alone at Sai Yee Street Children’s Playground in Mong Kok.

The girl had no apparent injuries and was taken to Kwong Wah Hospital in Yau Ma Tei for observation.

The force issued an announcement at 2.23am with details of the girl’s appearance to locate her next of kin, as she was not carrying an identity document.

The mother was arrested hours later when she went to Mong Kok Police Station in search of her daughter.

Police detained her on suspicion of ill-treatment or neglect of a child in her care.
