NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Newport News Police have arrested a woman after a 3-year-old boy was found alone Thursday.
Holly McPherson with the Newport News Police Department said officers responded to the 700 block of 36th Street after the boy was found by a citizen.
Officers located the boy’s home and were able to make contact with his babysitter, identified as Telesha Williamson, 36. McPherson said Williamson was supposed to be watching the child while his mother was at work, but she was sleeping.
Williamson was arrested and charged with child neglect. The boy’s mother took custody of her son.
Wet weather is expected to move into the area over the weekend, forcing some areas to cancel or change their holiday events.
Four vehicles were involved in a crash on Route 17 in Gloucester Friday morning.
Hampton Police want to prevent crime and have remixed a holiday classic to deter thieves from being Grinches.
