Woman arrested for padlocking son, seven, in room for 10 hours a day

A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD child whose mother locked him up in a bedroom and chained the door while she went out to work was rescued by Local Police and the fire brigade in Almonte (Huelva province, south-western Spain), emergency services reported last night (Friday).

They were called out by neighbours who heard the little boy 'crying inconsolably' from a balcony window.

The bedroom door was secured with chains and padlocks and no adult was apparently on the premises.

Police and firefighters found the little boy 'extremely dirty', very hungry, and the room in 'appalling conditions of hygiene'.

They took him to the local health centre for treatment, given his state of extreme anxiety, and to get him cleaned up, before handing him to the social services' women and children unit to be cared for.

Inquiries revealed this was not a one-off incident, but that the child's mother left him locked and chained in every non-school day between 06.30hrs and 16.30hrs when she had to work.

Medical reports showed possible signs of 'violent episodes', and two witnesses were traced who were able to confirm that the boy had suffered physical aggression at his mother's hands.

He has been temporarily placed in a children's home and his mother, a Spanish national and local to the province of Huelva, has been arrested.
