Police find five-year-old living with homeless mother

14-12-2009

Police in Brno discovered a five-year-old girl who had been living in a makeshift hut with her homeless mother and the mother’s partner. A warrant had been issued for the three of them several months ago, since the mother had been neglecting to take the child to legally prescribed medical check-ups. The girl was in a healthy but neglected state, and was taken away from her 44-year-old mother to be put into state care.
