Johannesburg - A woman was arrested in Soweto on Wednesday for leaving her four children unattended, police said.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele said a neighbour saw the children playing naked outside their shack in the cold on Tuesday afternoon.

When she found a hot plate on inside the house, she alerted the police.

A social worker took the children, aged eight, four, two and one-and-a-half, to a place of safety, Makhubele said.

The woman was found at her boyfriend's place on Wednesday morning.

"She didn't even know they were taken," said Makhubele.

The woman would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Thursday on charge of child neglect.
