The parents of a little boy who was found by himself in south Edmonton yesterday—were hauled away in handcuffs this morning…
At first–police thought the boy was about 2 or 3—but he’s actually 4—-and had been left behind when he had been at a park with his four siblings.
The kids are between 11 months–and 14-years old.
They’ve all been taken in by “child protective services.”
A stranger found him around 13th Avenue and Knottwood Road—but that person called police when the boy couldnt say where “home” was.
At that time–they believe he had been outside for at least 12 hours.
It wasnt til early this morning that a friend and family member called police—after seeing pictures and news stories about him.
This morning—police say they found out the parents had no idea he was missing—but that the kids usually spend the day at the park—by themeselves.
Charges are pending—-and police say drugs appear to be an issue in this case as well.
