Filipino mom arrested for abandoning baby boy

26 October 2017

Queen's Road East, where the baby was abandoned 
A Filipina mother who left her one-year-old baby boy on a street in Wanchai on Oct 19 has been arrested for cruelty to a child, the police said.

But no formal charges had  been filed against the 39-year-old woman, whom she did not identify.

The suspect, identified by local newspapers as Angelita Labador, had been released on bail and told to report to Wanchai Police Station in mid-November, the officer said.

Labador is said to be living in Wanchai and unemployed, but the police could not say whether the mother is a domestic worker or a resident.

She said a 38-year-old female neighbor of Labador reported to the police after seeing her leave the boy on the pavement at 280 Queen’s Road East.

Police found the baby conscious at 6:49 pm and sent him to Ruttonjee Hospital for a check-up.

Officers later nabbed Labador, who was said to be hiding nearby.

Local newspaper reports said she was a jobless resident of the area who was allegedly booked for child abuse half a year ago. - VBL
