WICHITA, Kansas — Wichita police were called Sunday evening to the 4200 block of South Hydraulic to check on the welfare of a child.
The officers found an 8-year-old boy alone.
“Through the investigation, they discovered that the parents had left the child alone, and often do leave the child alone so they can go to the casino,” said Capt. Darrell Atteberry, Wichita Police Department.
The child was taken into protective custody.
Police are planning to interview the parents.
