CINCINNATI - An East Price Hill woman is facing child endangering charges Friday morning after police found a 2-year-old in her care wandering alone on a busy street.

Cincinnati police arrested 39-year-old Crystal Marshall in the 3200 block of Warsaw Avenue at about noon Thursday after officials found a 2-year-old she was supposed to be watching walking on Enright Avenue without adult supervision. The child walked more than a half-mile away from Marshall's residence.

It took Marshall more than an hour to report the child missing, according to police. Authorities found the child at about 10:50 a.m. and Marshall called to report the 2-year-old missing at about noon.

Marshall is charged with child endangering and is scheduled to appear in front of a Hamilton County judge at 9 a.m. Friday.
