The Westport Police Department arrested a mother after her 2-year-old daughter was found wandering outside Saturday.
According to police, neighbors spotted the girl walking down Murvon Court. With the frigid temperatures outside, neighbors told police that they were worried because the child was only wearing adult slippers, long pajama pants and a long sleeve T-shirt.
The child was brought to the Westport Police Department where her mother, Tinatin Crouch came to pick up the girl.
Crouch told police that she left her 2-year-old at home sleeping with her 15-year-old child while she went to the store. However, the 2-year-old woke up and walked out of the house after the 15-year-old fell asleep.
Crouch was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a minor. She was released on a $500 bond and is expected to be arraigned at Superior Court in Norwalk on Feb. 5.
