A 35-year-old domestic worker was arrested by Hong Kong police on Tuesday for allegedly injuring a six-year-old girl under her care in an apartment in Kowloon’s Yau Tong area.
At 10pm, the girl allegedly complained to her 41-year-old mother that her foot had been injured by the maid in an apartment in Ko Fei House, Ko Cheung Court, Oriental Daily reported.
The mother examined her daughter’s foot and discovered spots of redness. She reported the case to the police.
After an initial investigation, police classified the case as ill-treatment or neglect by those in charge of a child or young person and arrested the domestic worker.
The little girl was sent to United Christian Hospital for medical examination.
