DARIEN, Conn. – A Darien man was arrested Sunday after two children -- one of them naked -- were found alone walking on a Darien street, according to police reports.
A witness called police to report that two children were wandering on Mechanic Street at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, police say. One of the children was naked at the time, according to the witness’s report. Officers found a pair of 5-year-old twins in a nearby parking lot, according to the report.
Police said they then searched the area for a parent looking for children. A Post Road woman later told police that she had left her two kids with her husband while she went shopping, according to the police report. The kids left the home when the man fell asleep, police say.
Officers talked to the man and smelled alcohol on his breath during the interview, according to the police report. Police decided to charge the 45-year-old Darien resident with two counts of risk of injury to a minor. He was released after posting $1,000 bond and is due in court Aug. 21.
