Police have arrested and charged an Ohio couple with child endangerment after an officer found their sobbing two-year-old son home alone and stuck in a toilet in their apartment, reports Fox 2 NOW.
The child’s mother, Justice Chance, 20, and the boy’s father, Rashaan Cuffee, 20, both of Canton, Ohio, were each charged Thursday with child endangerment and marijuana cultivation.
Police were called to an apartment on Kingston Drive Southeast in Canton on Thursday after neighbors reported hearing a child crying for more than 30 minutes, according to WJW [TV].
A maintenance worker building complex allowed police inside the apartment where they found the 20-month-old boy stuck in a toilet. The child was home alone at the time, according to police. Officers freed the boy from the toilet and notified Child Protective Services.
Officers also located three marijuana plants inside the home.
Chance, who returned home with shopping bags two hours after the child was found, claims that she left him with her sister, the report says. He is now in temporary protective custody.
