When police arrived, they knocked on the door. At first no one answered the door. But then the 6-year-old opened the front door and told the officer,
“Mommy left us here all alone and she went to go dancing.”
When officers entered the apartment, they found a 6-year-old, a 4-year-old, 1-year-old, and a 3-week-old by themselves.
The 6-year-old said it wasn’t the first time. She told police,
“She just left us here. She does it all the time.”
Police tracked down the children’s mother, 25-year-old Baleria Beltran, at Nite Club several miles from her home and arrested her. Investigators said she had been at the club for more than two hours.
Baleria is now in jail charged with four counts of endangering a child.
All four children are now with their grandmother, and Child Protective Services is investigating.
Could you imagine leaving a 3-week-old baby with a 6-year-old? Absolutely RIDICULOUS! Heck, I wouldn’t even leave my 3-week-old with his daddy because I felt like he needed me all the time at that point.
