CINCINNATI -- A South Cumminsville man was arrested Friday after police say he abandoned a toddler in a dumpsite for hours.
Authorities said 29-year-old Dwight Young got into a fight with the mother of his child Thursday at about 9:50 p.m. and kicked her out of their vehicle on Borden Avenue. When he drove away, he had their 18-month-old daughter with him.
Later in the evening, investigators said Young left the infant -- alone and still in her car seat -- among trash and broken glass at a dumpsite on Dreman Avenue.
After the child’s mother walked home and called 911, officers worked to locate Young and eventually caught up with him during a traffic stop – but the child wasn’t with him.
Police said Young refused to tell them where the infant was, but after a lengthy back and forth, he eventually gave in. He was placed under arrest around 2 a.m.
When officers finally recovered the child, she had been alone at the site for up to three hours, officers said.
"The baby was found, as far as we're aware, in satisfactory condition,” said Cincinnati Police Cpt. Russ Neville.
Young is scheduled to stand before a judge Saturday and faces charges of kidnapping, theft, child endangerment and custodial interference.
