An Oklahoma City woman is facing a charge of child neglect after police said she left her two young children home alone and they wandered outside.
Officers said they found the 6-year-old and 4-year-old standing at the corner of Heyman St. and Westwood Blvd. Investigators said they took the children back to their home and waited at least 35 minutes for their mother, Jerica Breanna Bruner, 29, to return home.
One of the children told police that Bruner leaves them alone at the house and tells them to stay in the back room. A relative of Bruner’s took custody of the children, officers said.
Bruner was arrested on a charge of child neglect and taken to the Oklahoma County Jail.
