A WOMAN who abandoned her two-day-old baby boy will soon be in court.
The 23-year-old woman was arrested on Wednesday by Hillcrest police after she left her newborn outside the Valley Trust Clinic on 4 July.
She has been in hiding ever since and cops were tipped off by a concerned resident about the woman’s whereabouts.
A resident told Daily Sun that the baby boy was brought to the clinic by three unknown men after they found him outside the gate.
“The three men were passing by the clinic when they saw the baby.”
KZN cop spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane said the baby was healthy when the three men found him.
“He was in good condition and was taken to a place of safety where he is also doing very well.
“The woman will appear in the Pinetown Magistrates Court soon.
“The motive for abandoning her baby boy is unknown at this stage.”
