Shocking video shows moment woman abandons toddler on stranger's doorstep

Shocking video shows moment woman abandons toddler on stranger's doorstep”

Surveillance video released Thursday shows a woman running up to the home, where she abandoned the child and fled, officials said.

That was at about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday, according to a statement from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

After locating the boy's father Thursday morning, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office discovered that the two-year-old boy's mother had asked a friend to drop off the child with the boy's father in Spring because the mother was in the hospital.

She was caught on a doorbell cam running up to the front of the property in Spring, Tx., Wednesday night before repeatedly pressing its buzzer.

A camera setup to record the home's porch and door showed a woman run toward the front door, holding a child by the arm with one hand and holding two bags in her other. The father ultimately left the house for the evening, assuming that the mother had changed her mind about the drop-off. The entire interaction lasts only 23 seconds.

The resident of the home called 911.

The child was uninjured and appeared to be in good health, deputies said. Child Protective Services took custody of the child and brought him to a foster family.

MCSO is still investigating. Now that the child has been returned to his family, the freakish reason why he was left has finally been revealed.

When Deputies arrived they viewed video surveillance and observed a black female arrive at the residence in a white passenger auto. She left before anyone came to the door.

"It was very alarming and very disturbing and my heart was hurting for that child", the lieutenant said about the surveillance video.

She now faces a charge of child abandonment, a felony, CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reports.

The boy remains in the custody of the state as the investigation continues.

After the dad learned of what had happened, police went to his home and learned that he had gotten a text from his son's mom the day before, Spencer said.
