Woman Seen Abandoning 2-Year-Old On Stranger’s Doorstep In Texas

Child abandoned

Montgomery County sheriff's deputies have identified a 2-year-old boy who was abandoned on the front porch of a Spring home near Houston.

The woman dropped off the child around 8:40 p.m. after the father left his home; however, the woman took the boy to the wrong house. When she reaches the front entrance, the woman puts the child down, repeatedly rings the door bell and knocks several times.

About 12 hours after the incident unfolded, deputies said they found his father.

"She just leaves the kid, takes off running, and gets the heck out of there", Courtney Fischer, a reporter for KTRK, said. The incident lasted less than 30 seconds.

"Detectives learned that the father of the child received a text from the mother of the child advising that a friend was going to drop off the child in the early afternoon", Spencer said. Officers reviewed the security footage and canvased the neighborhood, asking residents if they recognized the child.

The video shows her approaching the door quickly and dumping the boy and his belongings down. The sheriff's office said in doing so, it placed the child in grave danger.

In August, the same sheriff's department issued an appeal after another chilling video showed a semi-clothed woman wearing wrist-ties rushing up to a doorbell in the middle of the night.

A woman inside the home told police when she opened the door, she found the child by himself. "Deputies canvassed the area in an attempt to find anyone who knew the child but were unable to locate anyone".

The uninjured child is now in the protection of Child Protective Services, the sheriff's office said. Child abandonment is a third-degree felony. She also left two bags behind.

The child is now in the custody of Child Protective Services, which will determine whether to return him to his family.

"The investigation is ongoing once completed the case will be submitted to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office for changes".
