NORWALK, Conn. Two young girls whose mother told them to strip in public recently have nothing no clothes to wear and no school supplies, Norwalk police said. Officers in the community policing division are looking for donations to help the children.
The girls were found on Manresa Island on March 7 , after the power plant's shift supervisor saw their mother naked on a video surveillance camera. One child was nude, and the other was just wearing a shirt. Neither had on shoes, and they were crying and shivering in the 46-degree weather.
The girls were taken from their mother, who had been "acting strangely" since moving to South Norwalk from New York, according to papers filed at Norwalk Superior Court. They are with family members but have no belongings, according to Sgt. Lisa Cotto. She called the family to check on their welfare and asked whether they needed help.
Cotto said the girls need pants in girls sizes 14 slim and 8 slim, shirts in girls sizes 12 and 8 and dresses for church, girls sizes 14 and 8. Used clothing in good condition would be appreciated. They also need pencils, notebook and backpacks.
