A Hartford mother has been charged with risk of injury after her 2-year-old daughter was found wandering at Rowe and Capitol avenues around 8 p.m. on Friday, according to police and neighbors.
This is the second time in three weeks that this has happened with the same child, officials said.
The boy was taken to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center to be evaluated and he is fine, officials said.
Officers went to the mother’s house to investigate and found what they called “unacceptable living conditions.”
Other children were in the home, and have been placed in custody of the Connecticut Department of Children and Families.
Hartford Police and DCF are making arrangements for the kids.
The mother has been arrested and charged with risk of injury. She is cooperating, police said. Her name has not been released.
