RICHMOND, Va. – No charges will be filed at this time against the parents of a four-year-old child found wandering unsupervised along West Broad Street in downtown Richmond twice in four days.
Child Protective Services will take over the case and make sure the child is safe, according to Richmond Police spokesman James Mercante.
Witness said they saw the child walking along the 100 block of West Broad Street Monday morning. Police responded after a man walking his dog called 911, witnesses said.
Monday’s situation was similar to a situation on Friday when police were called to 115 West Broad Street after people spotted a naked child walking outside an apartment building.
Police, who later found the child’s mother, said she suffered from a medical condition.
A Richmond Police confirmed it was the same child in both incidents.
