    Woman arrested after child found wandering the streets.

    INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis woman faces neglect charges after her toddler was found alone in the dark near a busy road crying for her mother over Saturday night, Indianapolis television station WRTV reported.

    Christine Powell, 27, was being held in the Marion County Jail Sunday facing charges of cruelty and neglect of a dependent.

    Robert Turner said he saw a toddler crying hysterically and standing near the road at about 9 p.m. Saturday.

    "(She was crying) 'Mommy, mommy,' just asking where her mommy was," Turner said.

    Turner's son, Cody, said he went with his father to help Malena, 2.

    "A little girl was crying, asking where's her mommy," Cody Turner said. "She was screaming it."

    The Turners said they knocked on the doors and windows of the trailer where the girl was standing. When no one answered, Robert said he took the baby to his wife, who works nearby.

    "She was crying. She was screaming," said Milessa Turner. "When he brought her up here she was crying. She told me, 'Mommy's in bed.' So, I figured ... her mom was asleep. No, mommy wasn't even home."

    According to a police report, Powell was intoxicated when she arrived back home about an hour after officers got there.

    "She was just staggering, kind of drunk when she got out. She just said, 'I'm sorry.' There's no apology for that," Milessa Turner said.

    Police said Powell tested above the legal limit of .08 in a Breathalyzer test.

    Investigators said they don't know how long Malena had been left alone, just a few feet from busy Massachusetts Avenue.

    The child was placed in the custody of Child Protective Services.

    Better yet, I hope the operation is done for her.

    Sadly I have arrested many "parents" for the same thing.

    That is sad.

    Just last month I was driving down a street when a boy about 3 years old started to run out in the street in front of me. I stopped my car and looked around for the parents. Saw no one but a man in his front yard watching. Just as I was about to get out of my car to get the child, 3 women ran around the corner block yelling for the boy. One of the woman said he just learned how to open up doors. I said I was just about to call the police to come get him.
