A Bristow mother was arrested Wednesday and charged with child neglect, after her four-year-old son called 911 and said that he was hungry, Prince William County police said.
Love Sonia Altagracia Polanco Franklin, 43, returned to her home soon after officers arrived to help her son, who was in the house alone when he called 911, police said. She was released and faces a court hearing that has not yet been scheduled.
A police officer said Thursday that another relative is taking care of Polanco Franklin’s son. He said that police do not know how long the child had been left alone on Wednesday.
