Boy Found Locked In Car At Night

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- A man was arrested on child neglect charges after a boy was found inside a locked car at 10:30 p.m. at an Orange County apartment complex parking lot, sheriff's deputies said.

Kenneth Neal, 34, faces one count of child neglect.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, a deputy was called to the parking lot at the Key Isle Apartments in Ocoee on Sept. 2 around 10:45 p.m. in connection to a child left alone in a vehicle
A witness said she arrived in the parking lot at about 10:30 p.m. and heard a baby crying when she got out of her vehicle, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office. She said she looked in the Mercedes located next to her and saw a child sitting in a car seat, according to deputies.

The woman called her friends, and they called 911 while she checked to see if the doors to the vehicle were unlocked, deputies said. The doors were locked, so she knocked on doors to see who owned the car, but no one knew, Orange County sheriff's deputies said.

The deputy said emergency personnel broke the rear driver-side window of a Mercedes to get to the child, the sheriff's office said. The child appeared to be OK and was taken to a nearby hospital for further evaluation, Orange County sheriff's deputies said.

Deputies contacted Neal's wife, who said she thought her husband was with the boy at Chuck E. Cheese's, the sheriff's office said.

Neal, who was caring for the boy, arrived at about 11:23 p.m., deputies said.

Neal was arrested and has bonded out of jail.
