LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville mother and her boyfriend were arrested Sunday morning after the woman's 3-year-old daughter was found wandering alone near railroad tracks.
According to arrest reports, it happened on McCandless Circle, east of the intersection of Dixie Hwy. and W. Orell Rd. Police say 26-year-old Victoria Carrol left the child at her home, in the care of her boyfriend, 34-year-old Joshua Tate, while she went to a methadone clinic.
Police say Child Protective Services had told Carrol that she was not to leave her child alone with Tate.
A short time later, officers received a call from a witness who allegedly found the 3-year-old playing on the railroad tracks near E. Orell Road, "with no adult in sight."
When officers arrived at the home, they say they found the front door open and Tate passed out in the bedroom, "with no knowledge that the child was gone."
"Police have been here several times on the same child playing in the street with no supervision," the arrest report states.
The child was taken to the Home of the Innocents.
Both Carrol and Tate were arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. As Tate was arrested, he allegedly banged his head on the protective shield on the officer's car, as well as on the asphalt, causing minor injuries to himself.
He was given an additional charge of resisting arrest.
