Police say a mom left her 8-year-old daughter and one-year-old son at the stop after she got into a fight with the man they were with. He ran off and she gave chase. Dallas Police Senior Corporal Janice Crowther says the kids stepped into the street several times to run after their mom, only to be brought back to a bench by good Samaritans. “These children were not only in danger of being hit by a car, but may possibly have been in danger of being picked up by a stranger. It just so happened that these were good people who stayed with the children. They called 911 and they waited until the police got there.
The mom was arrested when she returned, some 15 to 20 minutes later. She’s been charged with child abandonment and child endangerment.
