A WOMAN was arrested after police found her with a four-month-old baby who was stolen from its grandmother two weeks ago.

Police at Mhala had applied for permission to track down Teleni Mnisi's cellphone and discovered that she was in Soshanguve.

"We first established that she was in Welkom and later in Soshanguve, where we found her with the child," police spokesperson Inspector Brian Mnisi said yesterday.

He said the police travelled with the child's parents, Seun Sibanda and Tinyiko Mabode, to Soshanguve.

"The child smiled when the mother appeared," Mnisi said.

The child was with its grandmother when Mnisi asked to take the baby to the supermarket to buy him yoghurt.

She disappeared with the child.

The police had initially said the child was a girl but Sowetan has since established that the baby is a boy.

Mnisi is now behind bars pending her appearance in the Mhala magistrate's court today.
