No Charges Expected After 2-Year-Old Found Wandering

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – Police say a two-year-old child found wandering a south St. Louis County apartment complex late this morning had been let out by an older sibling.

County Police officer Randy Vaughn tells KMOX the boy, wearing only a diaper, was found by a groundskeeper at the Port Apartments near Telegraph and Baumgartner in Oakville.

“Police were called, we responded and made contact with the father who had been sleeping inside the apartment,” he said.

Vaughn said the toddler is fine. Police are not expecting to seek charges against the father.
