The woman who is wearing sleeveless pink top and some black jeans is seen in a holding cell (fence) where they are also two men arrested for unknown charges.
Beside the woman, are the two minor children who are wearing the same type of t-shirts (light blue and black) while outside the holding cells are two policemen believed to be checking or recording the suspects. The policemen are seen holding detention books.
