Video Shows Woman Leaving Toddler On Stranger's Doorstep, Running Away

She was then seen ringing the doorbell, knocking on the door, and then running back to her auto and driving off and leaving the child behind.

The incident occurred at around 8.20 pm at Legends Ridge Drive in Spring, Texas, according to police.

According to Montgomery County deputies, a woman called 911 and said that she found a boy on her stoop after hearing a knock at her door. The father assumed the mother had decided not to drop the toddler off when he never came and left home Wednesday evening, investigators say.

Then, that night, the friend dropped the boy off at the wrong home, Spencer said.

The department had written: "The suspect is observed running toward the front door of the residence while lifting the child in the air by one arm". Once on the porch, she rings the doorbell, knocks on the door and then runs back to a waiting auto leaving child and two bags she was carrying behind. She faces a child abandonment charge, which is a third-degree felony. "It was very alarming and very disturbing and my heart was hurting for that child".

"The child is uninjured and appears to be in good health", it said, adding that the boy was in the custody of Child Protective Services and was being asked who left him behind. The incident lasted 23 seconds.

The sheriff's office said the mother has been identified, as well as the woman in the video.

She also left two bags she was carrying on the woman's doorstep before she drove off in a white vehicle, officials said.

Authorities know the woman's identity but will not release her name. "At that time child protective services were contacted, and the child was released to their custody".

The boy's father immediately contacted police when he recognised his son.

The police only found the father the following day and it turned out he lived next door and wasn't home at the time the police canvased the area.
