DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas police arrested a 28-year-old Dallas mother Sunday after she allegedly abandoned her seven-year-old daughter overnight outside the King Spa and Sauna in Northwest Dallas.
According to sources close to the case, the seven-year-old girl spent the night near a dumpster before being found near the spa Sunday morning looking for her mother.
The spa’s manager told CBS11 News the mother spent four hours in the spa Saturday evening and was spotted on security video leaving the front door shortly after 9:00 pm with her daughter by her side.
The mother then returned to King Spa and Sauna around 10:00am Sunday morning looking for her daughter.
At that time, police were called. Sources also told CBS 11 News that investigators believe the mother was intoxicated when she left the spa.
The manager of King Spa and Sauna said the mother for much of the evening was seen near one of the pool’s bar. The manager, however, said the spa has a strict three drink policy.
