Good Samaritan sought after young child found in alleyway in Bournemouth

Bournemouth Echo: Good Samaritan sought after "young child found in alleyway" in Bournemouth Good Samaritan sought after "young child found in alleyway" in Bournemouth

DETECTIVES in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and information after a young child was found unattended in Bournemouth - with one woman being arrested.

Officers were called to the Charminster area of the town at 5.15pm on Saturday following reports that a two-year-old boy had been found in an alleyway off Chelsea Gardens at the bottom of Malmesbury Park Road.

Police are investigating how the child came to be on his own and are keen to hear from a Good Samaritan who found the boy.

DC James Taylor, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said: “This is an unusual investigation and we are keen to establish exactly what happened.

“We know a woman found the boy unsupervised while she was out walking her dogs and handed him over to a couple who subsequently called the police.

“The woman did not wait for police to arrive and carried on walking her dogs.

“We are very keen to speak to this woman and I urge her to get in contact with me.”

A 34-year-old woman from Bournemouth was arrested on suspicion of child neglect and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries until the middle of January 2014.

Anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 14:378. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.

Thanks you to the lady and the couple who bothered to help this poor child. Although I can't help wondering why she didn't stay with the boy? Well done though, some people wouldn't have even bothered.

Well done to this lady.

Good job it wasn't a bloke who found this child, the Police would probably be looking to arrest him for suspected kiddy fiddling

I saw a young child of about three seperated from her mother in Boscombe by Greggs. I just told some women nearby because if I had approached her then I'm sure someone would have accused me of child abduction. What sad times we live in.

Seems its not child neglect though if you go on holiday, leave your child alone in a holiday apartment, go out for dinner Then find your' child abducted?

Hardly a story like The Good Samaritan, as we all remember ( except for an Echo reporter) the Good Samaritan bathed the victim of a robbery`s wounds and took him to an Inn and paid all the costs while he recovered........ not just just hand he over to the first people he saw!!!

Bluddy Greggs. They have no right seperating a child from it's mother.

Yeah I know, leaving them in a locked apartment, one with metal shutters on the window which were also down and 'locked', checking on them every 20 mins and being with a couple of hundred feet, in the same complex, where they had sight of the front of the building.

Makes me boil.

They proabably only got away with because they're posh.

Look at that woman who left her 4 kids under the age of 13 for a week and went to Tenerife with her new boyfriend, they did her for neglect though didn't they.

One rule for us and another for them eh? Ok she didn't do time but they still did her though.

its corrupt that's what it is eh?
