The father of a six-year-old girl, who was noticed when she was walking alone along the road between Parcewo and Bielskie Podlaski (Podlaskie Voivodeship), had nearly two per mille of alcohol in the body. It turned out that the girl wanted to go back to her mother. That’s why she left home where her father and a friend were drinking alcohol.
– The child was noticed by random people who were driving the car. The woman and the man were alarmed by the sight of a little girl walking along the road without any care, says Commissioner Agnieszka Dąbrowska from the Poviat Police Headquarters in Bielsk Podlaski.
Everything happened on Sunday before 1 p.m. on the route between Parcewo and Bielsk Podlaski. The patrol policemen immediately rode to the scene. It turned out that the six-year-old left her father’s house alone. And this one lives a few kilometers from Bielsk Podlaski.
The child was safely taken care of by the mother
– The girl told the policemen that she had decided to return to her mother, with whom she lives in Bielsk Podlaski. The officers quickly identified her personal details. After a while, the girl was safe, under her protection – says the policewoman.
Then the officers went to the place of residence of the six-year-old’s father.
Responsible for exposing the child to the risk of loss of life or health
– It turned out that the man was drinking alcohol with his friend and did not know that his daughter had left the house alone. A breathalyser test showed nearly two alcohol levels in his body – says Kom. Dąbrowska.
Now the man will be responsible for exposing the child to the danger of loss of life or health. However, he is threatening up to three years in prison.
