On 04/12/14, at 5:30 pm we were called to an apartment complex near 70th Street and Thomas Road. Three juvenile siblings had knocked on the door of a neighbor in the complex asking the neighbor to call CPS for them. The neighbor called us and we spoke to the children, a 14 year old girl and two boys; one 10 and one five. The five year old boy has autism.

While interviewing the children, the mother arrived and was taken into custody. Officers booked her on neglect and endangerment charges as there are multiple pools in the complex and there is construction in the area just outside of the complex. The children were left unattended for nearly an hour and a half before the mother began looking for them.
The children were turned over to CPS.
