ATLANTA - Atlanta police handcuffed a man in his pajamas and led him to jail for allegedly allowing his 3-year-old girl to wander the street alone.
Police say Bailey left his daughter alone inside their Legacy Drive home on Tuesday morning and the child wandered out of the apartment and onto Joseph E Lowery Boulevard.
Sgt. Greg Lyon said Bailey told officer he went up the street to a gas station.
“A woman saw the toddler in the street crying and she was trying to flag down cars,” Lyon said. “She stopped, collected the child and called 911.”
Bailey faces several charges. The child has been returned to her mother.
