A Miami Gardens woman is being held in jail after police found her toddler son wandering alone outside.
Mathieu Anice, 28, was arrested Tuesday night after she told police she was not aware her 2-year-old was found on the streets, according to Miami Herald news partner CBS4. Police were tipped off after getting several calls from people who noticed the toddler.
“After a while they asked questions in the neighborhood and they came to a house where they pointed where the child lives,” said Miami Gardens Police Capt. Ralph Suarez told CBS4.
“The units brought the kid to the house and it was at that point she realized the child was missing.”
Officers located Anice in the 3400 block of 177th Terrace. According to the station, Anice was arrested in March 2012 on felony child neglect charges.
Anice is being held on $5,000 bond. Her son and other children in the home have been removed by the state.
