Kids left alone; mom charged

WARREN — City police were alerted early Tuesday morning about three young children being left alone at home in the 2300 block of Wick Street SE.

According to a police report, two officers were sent to the address about 2:37 a.m. and told by the father of two of the children — a 9-month-old girl and a 2-year-old boy — that the mother had left them home alone so she could attend a party. The man said he received that information from a friend.

The report states a case worker from Trumbull County Children Services had been brought in, and the man was allowed to take his two children to his Bristolville home, while CSB took custody of a 4-year-old boy and took him to a grandparent’s home in Niles.

Trumbull County Jail records show that Sara D. Bailey, 23, was taken into custody Tuesday morning on three counts of endangering children. Warren Municipal Court officials said Bailey is expected to be arraigned this morning.
