East Side Mom To Be In Court In New Year

A 20 year old woman facing criminal charges of child abandonment will be back in court in January.

She was released on a promise to appear.

Police responded to the Park Place Apartments off Hickey Road early yesterday afternoon to check on some young children who were screaming.

Officers arriving on scene found a 1 year old baby and a 3 year old toddler alone in the apartment.

The Department of Social Development was contacted along with the Family Protection Unit and Forensic Identification services. 

The kids were removed and taken to hospital to be examined for malnutrition and dehydration. They're currently in the care of the Department of Social Development.
