Tennessee man detained after three kids found home alone
Nashville, TN, United States (4E) – A 24-year-old man from Nashville, Tennessee has been arrested Wednesday after police found that he left three kids in his care alone at home.
According to authorities, officers arrived at the house along University Court to inform Stephen Bonner that he was due in court. Instead, they discovered the children, two four-year-olds and one-year-old child, home alone.
Bonner was not located in the residence.
Police affidavits stated one of the four-year-olds asked police for food and something to drink because she was hungry.
When the children’s mother returned while the officers were still tending to the children, she claimed that Bonner was supposed to be babysitting them.
The woman called Bonner, who came back to the apartment shortly.
Bonner was charged with three felony counts of child neglect and is being held on a $7,500 bond.
