North Jersey Mom Charged With Child Neglect
Child neglect charges have been filed against a northern New Jersey mother who allegedly left her 4-year-old son home alone.
The child was not hurt in the Jan. 12 incident.
Authorities tell The Jersey Journal that 25-year-old Yoleidy Olmos of West New York left the child unattended in her apartment. The boy was later found by a "concerned citizen," who notified authorities.
Olmos was arrested when she returned home. Authorities have not said how long the child was left alone or where Olmos had gone.
A telephone number for Olmos could not be located Wednesday.
