Naked mum arrested after police find her and child in street
A 37-year-old naked tourist was arrested in Fuerteventura for abandoning her toddler daughter in the street after being spotted “inebriated and wearing just flipflops” in the middle of the night
Police have identified the woman only by her initials of D.S. and have not confirmed her nationality but say she was a “foreign tourist”.
She was stopped by the Civil Guard at 1.20am following a telephone call from two other holidaymakers in the popular resort of Corralejo who had spotted her with the little girl. They said the mother had no clothes on and had clearly been drinking.
When officers went to the area where she had been seen, they found the four-year-old youngster in good health in the middle of the street. The woman, who confirmed she was her mother, was discovered near by “naked and with clear symptoms of drunkenness”. Police said she then became abusive towards the officers and insulted them.
The incident happened on January 31st but has only just been confirmed.
The woman was arrested for allegedly temporarily abandoning her four-year-old daughter on the street.
The child was taken temporarily to an official reception centre in Puerto del Rosario whilst her mother was passed to the courts.
