Police in Monaca said she left two small children alone in an apartment on Marshall Road that was filled with garbage and waste.

A neighbor found the toddler outside at 1 a.m. March 7 and called police.

“I looked out the window and she was over on the hillside. I ran out and I got her. I brought her in and she was soaking wet. I cleaned her up. She was very, very dirty,” the neighbor said.
