Found Child Reunited With Mother; Father Arrested For Child Neglect

 

A toddler found wandering a neighborhood on Sturgeon Bay's east side has been reunited with her mother and the child's father has been arrested on child neglect charges.

Sturgeon Bay police say officers were dispatched to the area of Superior Street Sunday at 12:22 p.m. for a found child. The girl had been found wandering in the neighborhood and neighbors couldn't locate any parents.

Eventually police were alerted to a residence in the neighborhood where a man was lying unresponsive on the porch. Police say the 23-year-old Sturgeon Bay man was intoxicated, had walked to the location and had fallen asleep with his child nearby. Officers arrested him on charges of child neglect and felony bail jumping for violating absolute sobriety requirements of his bond.  

Police are thanking neighbors for their assistance in the incident.
