Late at night when temperatures dropped below freezing, a woman has been arrested who ran away from her four-year-old daughter on a secluded road in the suburbs.

In Goyang, Gyeonggi-do, there is nothing to see except the quiet road and streetlights.

Daycare centers, nursing hospitals, and churches are sparsely populated, but after the sun goes down, people are cut off.

Last Friday, around 10 p.m., a four-year-old girl was found left alone on the side of the road.

At that time, the lowest temperature in the area was minus 1 degree Celsius.

Someone left the car, but fortunately, a passerby found the child shortly after and called 112, and the police immediately rescued the child.

There was a daycare right in front of the place where the child was found, but it was not the child who attended.

The child was strangely carrying a bag from a daycare center in Incheon, which was over an hour away by car.

The police, who contacted the daycare listed on the child’s bag, luckily found the child’s father immediately and handed over the child.

The next evening, the police immediately arrested two people, a 30-year-old mother and a 20-year-old man, on charges of abandoning the child at different locations.

The two met through an online game and met for the first time on the day of the crime.

After taking the child to the car at the daycare center in Michuhol-gu, Incheon around 5 pm, he took the child to Wolmido, Gangnam, Seoul, and Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do for 5 hours, and threw it away on the roadside where there are few people.

“It’s not that they went out to play for the sake of the child, it’s the first time they’ve met in person. It’s something they ate as they went out with each other…”

After abandoning the child, it turned out that the two went to the accommodation together.

The police confirmed that the two had been on the phone several times, and they believe that they had conspired to abandon the child before they met.

The child’s biological parents were neither divorced nor separated, but the police are investigating why the mother suddenly abandoned her daughter.

The police applied for an arrest warrant for the mother and the man on charges of child abandonment.
