Is this homelessness or slackness?
This man was spotted sleeping with this child on the pavement at the corner of Oronoque and Robb Streets around midday yesterday.
He claimed that he is a security guard at nights and has nowhere to sleep during the day, since the house he was living in was sold and the new owners put him out.
He claims that the child is two years old and her mother had left her in his care as she works during the day.
However there is some evidence that the child whose hair was neatly plaited was destined for some sort of day care, since the man was seen resting his head on what appeared to be a lunch pack complete with table towel.
The man’s motorcycle was parked on the road nearby and several onlookers stopped and stared at the disturbing sight.
