Police: Mom left tots alone while she was at work
A 6-month-old baby was left in a closet Friday and her 5-year-old sister was found wandering a parking lot while their mother went to work, Fort Worth police said.
Police spokesman Jimmy Pollozani said the mother left the children alone while she went to work overnight.
Around 6 a.m. Friday, police received a call that the girl was in the parking lot alone without a coat, KXAS-TV (NBC5) reported.
The baby was found in the closet after police arrived and went to the girl’s apartment.
Police said the children were unharmed. The temperature this morning was in the 40s.
The apartment complex is in the 3600 block of Oak Tree Circle in Fort Worth, just south of Interstate 20 and west of Interstate 35W. Police are investigating.
