BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Bridgeport police have arrested a 35-year-old city woman for leaving her three children home alone while she went to a nightclub.
Mycheral Walker was charged with three counts of felony risk of injury to a minor early Sunday morning after police went to her apartment on a report of unattended children. Police say Walker has two daughters ages 1 and 4 and a 13-year-old son.
State law doesn’t specify at what age a child can be left home alone to care for younger siblings. Police didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment.
Walker was released on a promise to appear in court Jan. 9. She couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday. There’s no phone listing for her and it’s not clear if she has a lawyer.
