Warren police find 1-year-old, 3-year-old running outside; mother says she was sleeping

Local News

Officers say two children were found running outside by a woman who called officers.

Those children were later identified as a one-year-old and a three-year-old. 

Warren police say they went to the home on the 2100 block of Peace Ave. in Warren on Sunday around 11:20 a.m.

The mother told officers she was sleeping when her two youngest children left the home. She has six children.

Police say the home was in deplorable condition. Food was all over the kitchen floor and ants covered the food. 

The mother was told CSB would be notified of the living conditions. 

Officers spoke with the woman who found the children. She told them she called because she thought the children would run toward the road. 

She then tried to return the children to the home — the mother wouldn’t answer.
