Hopkinsville Police arrested a woman on criminal abuse charges Wednesday night after she allegedly let a small child in her care wander away.
The arrest citation says Officer Daniel Gray was investigating a disturbance on Poplar Street around 9 pm when 19-year old Tiffany Mosby arrived to take two small children away from the scene for a victim involved in the incident.
Soon after, a five-year old child showed back up on foot. Police say the child had followed Mosby to a Sharpe Street residence. Mosby reportedly said she didn't notice the child had walked away, according to the report.
She was lodged in the Christian County Jail on first degree criminal abuse charges.
