JUST IN: Police were called to a home a short time ago to find four children home alone-with the oldest among them eleven years old and the youngest just six months old. Apparently, the mother had stepped out for a few minutes leaving the oldest to babysit. However, upon hearing a knock at the door, one of the children got frightened and called the police. Police arrived moments before the mother-to find the children unattended. Although a neighbor was left monitoring the children, apparently this did not suffice, and upon his arrival, the officer contacted DYFS (Division of Youth and Family Services) to deal with the situation. Several Askonim are working with the authorities on the case at this time.
U/D 12:11 a.m. DYFS just left the home and Baruch Hashem they were pleased with what they heard and saw. The parents are not facing any charges.
