A local woman was arrested yesterday afternoon after her two small children were allegedly found walking alone on a city street.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Daniel Gray writes on the arrest card that two small children were walking on the street near Canton and Richard around 12:20pm without supervision.
When officers made contact with their mother—30-year old Holly Ann Render of Hopkinsville—she said she had fallen asleep and didn’t know they were missing. When officers talked to neighbors, they reportedly said it isn’t uncommon for the children to be in the street unsupervised.
The children were released into the custody of their mother and Render was arrested on two counts of wanton endangerment.
