BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – A 22-year-old Bridgeport woman has been charged with endangering her two children after her 1-year-old daughter was found wandering the street in front of their home.

A woman driving on Arctic Street just before midnight Saturday night spotted the child in the middle of the road. Police say the toddler was wearing only a T-shirt and a diaper, while temperatures hovered at about the freezing mark.

Police say neighbors showed them where the child lived, and they found a 3-year-old child alone in the apartment.

Christina Gonzalez arrived home about an hour later. She faces two counts each of reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a minor.

The two children have been placed in the custody of the state Department of Children and Families.
