Police awake a couple – after a child was found walking alone and naked in a northeast Salina neighborhood.
Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that 23-year-old Efrain Martinez and 21-year-old Brooklyn Wylie were arrested Monday night on charges of child endangerment.
Police say a 3-year-old girl who was naked and covered in feces was seen walking alone about 6pm, when a concerned neighbor covered the girl and took her into her home.
Officers were able to identify the child’s house and made a visit, apparently waking up the two adults.
Once inside, officers also discovered an infant boy who was covered in feces and in a bouncy chair.
The children were placed in protective custody.
According to Captain Sweeney, Wylie is facing additional charges for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
