Children Removed from Home After Caregiver Finds Toddler Covered in Feces
DAYTON -- No heat, no water, and a one-year-old child covered in feces.
That's what Dayton Police say they found inside a home on Mayfair Road.
Dayton police received a call from a woman who takes care of a man who lives inside this home and she told them she couldn't believe what she saw.
"I just took one of the kids that was in the house because he was covered in feces, and I took him to my house to bath him," said the caller to the 911 dispatcher.
A 911 call to Dayton Police about conditions inside the house.
"It's been going on, no taking care of the children the water is not on in the house, Vectren is not on in the house DP&L is expected to be shut off at any time," said the caller to 911 dispatcher.
"It's been a number of times I've seen the kids like out running up and down the street and one of them was unclothed," said a neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous.
Neighbors say it's not the first time they've seen cruisers outside the home.
"The kids we're locking each other out the house and one of the kids came out with no clothes on," she said, "I think one of the cops had came then to make sure that someone was there at the time with the kids."
Once inside the home, officers say it wasn't the worst they've seen, but with no gas and no running water, it wasn't safe.
"I didn't know they's was in there with no lights and water and gas and stuff," said a neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous.
"I'm shocked, I'm just, I'm, I'm blown over," said a neighbor.
The kids' mother was no where to be found and police couldn't get in contact with her.
Neighbors feel bad that the kids were living in those conditions.
"I feel sorry for them I didn't know they was struggling like that they need some help," said a neighbor.
The three young kids are now in the custody of children services.
DAYTON -- Police were called to 2017 Mayfair Road for a welfare check after a caregiver for an adult male arrived at the home and saw a toddler covered in feces.
Dayton Police Sgt. Jeff Thomas says the caregiver was there for the adult male but the caregiver called police after seeing the conditions.
The caregiver says she took the 1-year-old to her home, where she gave him a bath.
After police arrived, a 6-year-old girl, and 3- and 1-year-old boys were placed into the custody of Children Services.
Thomas said the adult in the house was incapable of watching the children since he himself needed a caregiver, and the children's mother could not be located.
Sgt. Thomas did not have the mother's name.
