WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A woman has been arrested after her young child was found wandering in southeast Wichita.
Lt. Doug Nolte said Monday that a neighbor called 911 on Sunday night to report that a 4-year-old boy was walking into the street and crying for his mother. The Wichita Eagle reports that officers found the child’s mother passed out on couch in an apartment with an open front door.
Nolte says the woman had drunk a large amount of alcohol.
Officers took the woman into custody on an outstanding warrant and for suspicion of child endangerment.
The boy was placed in the care of other relatives.
