Son, 8, locked in car while father goes to bingo
A FATHER has been arrested in Arrecife (Lanzarote) for leaving his eight-year-old son locked in his car to go to a bingo hall.
The accused, 33, is said to have an existing criminal record and was caught after residents near where the car was parked heard a child inside crying and calling for help.
They rang the National Police hotline, 091, who rushed to the scene and managed to open the car.
The little boy said his father had 'gone to bingo ages ago' and that he, the child, was 'very scared'.
Whilst some of the officers looked after the boy, others went to find his father in the bingo hall, which was barely 100 metres away.
The child and youth prosecution service has been alerted, and the child is now with his mother.
It is thought the father was released with charges following his arrest.
