A Salina woman is in police custody after being arrested for child endangerment.
Angelia Napoleone, 25 of Salina, is charged with four counts of child endangerment. Her three-year-old son has committed a series of acts dating back to late August that prompted the arrest.
On August 27, the child was found at the Board of Trade Building on 1700 E. Iron Avenue in just his underwear. He was located .2 miles away from his home. On September 1, the toddler was again found in his underwear at Sunset Elementary. Napoleone claimed she was sleeping and didn’t know the child was out, and her son was returned to her. Three days later on September 4, police were called to the home after the child got into the mother’s vehicle, was able to get the car into neutral and struck another vehicle. Again, Napoleone told the police that she was asleep and the child acted without her knowing.
Finally, on September 24, the child was allegedly found unattended at the intersection of Navajo and Pueblo by school employees at Sunset Elementary, and the child walked across the street to play on the school’s playground.
This prompted police to pick up Napoleone, and the child is now in protected custody in a foster home.
