A 28-year-old Tel Aviv woman was arrested on Sunday morning on suspicion of neglecting her children, aged two, four and five.
Police officers patrolling the area entered the apartment after noticing the two older children standing on a windowsill. Inside the flat, they discovered the two-year-old girl tied to her bed.
The mother claimed that she had left the house to buy groceries at the local store.
The children were transferred to the care of their father.
