Toddler abandoned on stranger's doorstep

Toddler abandoned on stranger's doorstep

Home security video shows a woman leaving a child on a doorstep and driving off.

It happened about 8 p.m. Wednesday night in Spring, Texas. The father assumed the mother had decided not to drop the toddler off when he never came and left home Wednesday evening, investigators say.

The home where she had left the child was next door to the father's residence.

The video shows the unnamed friend rush up to the doorstep carrying the child by his arm.

The woman rings the door bell, knocks on the door and then runs back to the vehicle, leaving behind the toddler and two bags she was carrying.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says the woman could be charged with felony child endangerment. The woman faces a charge of child abandonment. "It was very alarming and very disturbing and my heart was hurting for that child". "Detectives are working with child protective services to reunite the child with members of his family", Spencer said in a statement. The entire incident took 23 seconds.

The toddler turns and stares after the woman as she runs then drives away. In one hand, she holds two bags, and in the other, she grips the hand of a 2-year-old boy with his feet off the ground. A woman then reportedly opened the door and called the police.

The child appeared to be uninjured and in good health.

Deputies were able to locate the father the next morning.

They have appealed for further information about the woman and have described her as being in her mid-20's to early 30's with long hair reaching below her waist.

The boy has since been named in reports as Royal Prince Simmons, whose father was believed to live next door to the house where he was abandoned. "At that time child protective services were contacted, and the child was released to their custody". The father recognised the child when he saw the video.
