Atlanta woman faces child cruelty charges after security finds child hungry, alone at apartment www.privateofficer.com
Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said that about 5:45 a.m. Monday, a security guard working at the complex on Rhodes Street noticed one of the children at the top of the stairs in the apartment and another child at the bottom of the stairs.
The security guard also told police “that the downstairs of the apartment was in disarray and there was no food in the house,” Jones said.
The children did not appear to be injured, but were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding to be checked out, Jones said. Medical personnel later determined that the children were healthy.
“Around 8 a.m., the children’s mother, Lynn Danielle Warner, called 911 and stated that her children were missing,” Jones said.
She said officers arrested Warner, 25, and charged her with cruelty to children and reckless conduct.
