Police are investigating the ill-treatment of a two-year-old boy in Louth this summer.

Their investigation concerns an incident that took place on James Street on Wednesday August 14 at around 5:30pm.

The boy was walking along the street with a woman. He was distressed, and the woman’s treatment of the boy was such that two people who were passing felt it was necessary to confront her.

Police have spoken to one of those who intervened, but are now trying to trace the other.

They think that her name may be Yvonne, and may work in the social care environment. On the day in question she was wearing a lilac tabard, and was driving a silver estate car.

The officer in the case is DC 384 Kirsty Longmuir, and she is asking the woman to come forward. Alternatively, she would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may know her identity.

Kirsty can be contacted on 01522 885317, or via the non-emergency 101 number.
