East London new-born baby snatcher in court again on Thursday

FEBRUARY 29, 2016

The woman was alleged to have stolen the day-old child from her mother on February 22 while at a busy supermarket.

It was unclear how the woman had managed to take the child from her mother.

"With the assistance of the community, a 28-year-old woman was arrested in Silvertown informal settlement, busy packing her bags, apparently getting ready to leave town," said Lieutenant Nkosikho Mzuku.

The woman appeared in the Mdantsane Magistrate's Court last week.

The case was postponed to March 3 where she was expected to apply for bail.
