Man arrested for leaving kids in running car

March 3, 2009

A 36-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested for parking an operating vehicle after he left three small children unattended in the 2200 block of North 72nd Street about 7 p.m. Saturday.

A 1-year-old and 2-year-old twins were sleeping in an unlocked, running vehicle that had the keys in the ignition.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

Shortly after officers arrived, the man came out to the truck from a nearby residence and told officers he did not see a potential problem.

"This is Wauwatosa. This ain't Fifth and Center," he said.

Officers warned him about the dangers of leaving items and people in a vehicle when there have been thefts and burglaries that have happened in the area.
