Woman in Texas facing abandonment charge after allegedly leaving child alone on doorstep

VIDEO: Woman captured on camera leaving toddler on stranger's doorstep

A woman dialed 911 after she heard a knock at her door and then found a 2-year-old boy standing on her doorstep by himself.

A toddler is safe and in good health after a frantic woman left him on the front porch of a home in Texas, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

A woman was captured on surveillance video abandoning a 2-year-old boy at stranger's front door Wednesday night, police said.

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. "That is a felony charge", Spencer said.

Deputies told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth the mother sent to a text message to the father saying she planned to drop the boy off with him Wednesday.

Seeking to discredit criticism of his record, O'Rourke repurposed the barb against Trump's former GOP presidential primary rival. Cruz claimed that O'Rourke is the only Senate Democratic candidate this cycle who has explicitly supported Trump's impeachment.

He said it's possible she could face a child abandonment charge. The entire interaction lasts only 23 seconds. The father immediately recognized the child as his own, and authorities were called.

That never happened, Spencer said during the press conference, so the father assumed plans had changed and he left the neighborhood.

They said that the youngster appears to be unharmed, and that he is now under Child Protective Services custody. "Deputies canvassed the area in an attempt to find anyone who knew the child but were unable to locate anyone".

A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services told the Chronicle that the child was "safe, healthy, no signs of abuse and is happy", and that the department was investigating the circumstances around his care. She has long hair that falls past her waist and distinctive tattoos on her right arm.
