Young Children Left Home Alone

A Salina man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after allegedly leaving his two young children home alone.

Police allege that 30-year-old Raymond Tolson left two children, a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old, home alone at a house while he left to run some errands.

Captain Mike Sweeney says that the children were left alone at a home in the 800 block of Seneca for about a half hour. They were discovered by a visitor who showed up, and saw them through a window. The visitor called police.

The children were not hurt. They were taken into protective custody, and then released to a relative.

Tolson was booked into the Saline County Jail on charges that could include child endangerment.
