Video Shows Woman Leaving Toddler On Stranger's Doorstep, Running Away

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

She then turns and runs back to her auto, leaving the little boy on the porch, bewildered.

According to The Associated Press, the boy's father lives next door to the home where the woman left the child.

The mom had reportedly asked the friend to drop off the child at his father's house, but she went to the wrong address.

Spencer said officers initially canvassed the area and knocked on all the doors in the neighborhood searching for the boy's family.

Spencer said that the woman in the video has been identified, but she has not yet been found or interviewed by the sheriff's office.

The boy's father, who identified the boy as 2-year-old Royal Simmons, told KPRC2's Taisha Walker that the friend dropped his son off at a neighbor's home instead of his house. "The entire incident was captured on video surveillance and lasted 23 seconds", the sheriff's office said.




The occupant of the home in Spring, who is a neighbour of the boy's father, found the boy and called police, who released the security video yesterday, ABC News US reports. Spencer says the friend left the boy on the front step Wednesday night without waiting for anyone to open the door.

"If that was her child, she wouldn't have left him", he said, according to the Chronicle.

"It was very alarming and very disturbing and my heart was hurting for that child", the lieutenant said about the surveillance video.

They have appealed for further information about the woman and have described her as being in her mid-20's to early 30's with long hair reaching below her waist.

When Deputies arrived they viewed video surveillance and observed a black female arrive at the residence in a white passenger vehicle. Child protective services took custody of him and worked to reunite him with his family. At this point the identity of the suspect and the child are unknown.

Lt. Scott Spencer, of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, said that the child's father received a text message from the child's mother saying the boy would be dropped off at his house on Wednesday afternoon.
