Mother Arrested For Leaving Young Children At Home To Party

From Bill Kaempffer, city police spokesman:

A City woman faces child endangerment charges after she left her three children at home alone to go to a club.

Officers Juan Esquilin and Mathew Szymczak on Sunday responded at 2:30 a.m. to a Boston Avenue address on a report of children being left unattended in the home. Police spent more about 30 minutes knocking on the front and then rear door. At that point, they heard the sound of people entering the apartment. They continued to knock and Mycheral Walker, 35, answered the door. Police entered the apartment to check on the welfare of the children and located two girls, ages 1 and 4, and a boy, 13.

Walker, the mother, stated that she had gone to an “after-hours” place on Stratford Avenue called L&A Social Club. Walker stated she went to the after-hours club because she is at home all week with the children and wanted to have some fun.

Walker was charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor. The state Department of Children and Families was alerted.
