A mother in Texas abandoned her 2-year-old son in front of a strangers house. According to KTVT, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home in Spring, Texas, when a 911 caller said she heard a knock at her door. When she answered it, she found the child without the parent.
“When deputies arrived they viewed video surveillance and observed a black female arrive at the residence in a white passenger car,” Lt. Scott Spencer, with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, said in a Thursday morning news release. “The suspect is observed running toward the front door of the residence while lifting the child in the air by one arm. Once the suspect arrives at the front door she rings the door bell, knocks on the door and then flees back to her vehicle abandoning the 2 year child and two bags she was carrying. The entire incident lasted 23 seconds.”
“The child is uninjured and appears to be in good health,” Spencer said, adding that Child Protective Services took custody of the boy.
The boy’s dad lives next door and confirms the child in the video is 2-year-old Royal Prince Simmons. The mother has yet to be identified.
