Parents charged after 3-year-old found walking alone in road
RAGLEY, La. (AP) — A Louisiana couple has been charged with abandonment after their 3-year-old child was found walking alone in the middle of a road, authorities said.
Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff’s deputies were called to the street near Ragley on Sunday by a driver who spotted the toddler walking unattended down the middle of the road, according to a statement from the agency.
Deputies said they determined the mother of the child, Rochelle Renee Riley, 41, left her home to go to the store and the father, Brock Kevin Manuel, 27, failed to watch the children.
It was not immediately clear whether Riley and Manuel had attorneys who could comment for them.
