A 5-year-old boy called 911 because he was hungry after police say his mother left him and a 10-month-old baby home alone for several hours.
Police were sent to Pin Oak Manor apartments in Mishawaka on Friday morning, June 5, after receiving the 911 call from the child, according to 95.3 MNC's reporting partners at ABC 57.
Police arrived at the complex shortly afterward and brought McDonald’s for the 5-year-old child. While there, they found that the children had been left home alone for at least four hours.
“Anytime children are involved, or any kind of mistreatment where children can't fend for themselves, it's very heartbreaking,“ Mishawaka Police Chief Ken Witkowski told ABC 57.
