Woman in Texas facing abandonment charge after allegedly leaving child alone on doorstep

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, the child's mother planned to take him to his father's, but she ended up in the hospital.

But the friend left the boy on the front step of a random home without waiting for anyone to open the door.

The suspect ran toward the front door of the residence while lifting the child in the air by one arm.

Surveillance video that shows a Texas woman leave a friend's toddler alone on a stranger's doorstep is going viral after authorities posted the clip on social media.

But the woman seen in the video says she just made a mistake.

Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said the woman pulled up at the property in a white auto, and that the entire incident lasted just 23 seconds.

It is too early in the investigation to know if the mom will face charges, Spencer said, but he emphasized that she turned her child over to someone who she believed was a responsible adult. She also left two bags behind.

Passan writes that the league has not punished the Astros for any illegal behavior following the investigation. According to Yahoo Sports , the Athletics also were suspicious of the Astros in August.

The boy's father immediately contacted police when he recognised his son. She then drops the bags she was carrying, runs back to her parked white vehicle and drives away, leaving the little boy behind.

The woman knocks on the door before running from the scene to her auto. "When the child did not show up at the residence the father assumed the mother of the child's plans had changed and then left the residence for the evening".

The homeowner took the child inside and called police.

The woman seen in the surveillance video dropped the little boy off at the wrong home. Now that the child has been returned to his family, the weird reason why he was left has finally been revealed.

The uninjured child is now in the protection of Child Protective Services, the sheriff's office said.

The sheriff's office will continue to investigate.

"If that was her child, she wouldn't have left him", Simmons said, according to the Houston Chronicle.
