NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A New Haven mother has been arrested after her 2-year-old was found wandering naked in the street.
Police tell the New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/18wiHlA ) the girl was wandering near the intersection of Chapel Street and Ellsworth Avenue Monday when neighbors pulled her to safety and called police.
They charged 23-year-old Amada Sellers with risk of injury.
Police say Sellers told them she had fallen asleep and that her daughter knew how to let herself out of their apartment. Police say they found the apartment door open and the common door to the building unlocked.
Sellers could not be reached for comment Wednesday. A phone listed for her residence had been disconnected.
Authorities say the Department of Children and Families has placed the child in the care of a relative.
