Woman arrested after toddlers left home alone, wander outside
3 toddlers found home alone, 2 wander outside
A woman faces charges after San Antonio police say two toddlers were found alone on a playground at their West Side apartment complex, and another found alone inside an apartment late Thursday night.
Officers were called to the Villa Veramendi apartments in the 300 block of Castroville Road around 10 p.m.
Police said two of the children – ages 1 and 2--- had been found alone on a playground, dressed in diapers. A 3-year-old child was found alone inside an apartment nearby, police said.
Officers spent more than an hour searching the grounds for the mother of the children. At some point later, she showed up and was arrested, police said.
The woman, whose name has not been released, faces two counts of endangering a child.
Officers took the toddlers to a children’s shelter. Police did not say where the woman was or why she allegedly left her children home alone.
