  • Woman in Texas facing abandonment charge after allegedly leaving child alone on doorstep

She then can be seen driving away in a white vehicle. The child's father lives nearby.

When that did not happen, he left the home assuming the mother had changed her mind, but the mother was in the hospital and asked her friend to drop the child off. "The suspect is observed running toward the front door of the residence while lifting the child in the air by one arm", said the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

It wasn't until the next day that they found the boy's father, who lived next door to the home where the child was abandoned. The boy was identified by KTRK-TV as Royal Prince Simmons.

According to Montgomery County deputies, a woman called 911 and said that she found a boy on her stoop after hearing a knock at her door.

When authorities arrived at the residence, they viewed video surveillance and observed a female arrive at the residence in a white passenger vehicle. CPS is trying to find the child's family members so that he can be reunited with them.

An investigation into the matter is still ongoing.

Fischer went around the neighborhood to see if anyone could identify the boy or the woman who left him.

When Deputies arrived they viewed video surveillance and observed a black female arrive at the residence in a white passenger auto.

She then rang the doorbell, knocked on the door and sprinted away, leaving the little boy standing clueless in front of the door.

Ring doorbell video captured the incident Wednesday night, which lasted about 23 seconds. "This little kid is left looking around, doesn't know what is going on".

Child Protective Services will ultimately decide who will have custody of the child.

The uninjured child is now in the protection of Child Protective Services, the sheriff's office said.

"I was gut-wrenched", Lt. Scott Spencer said of his reaction to the video.

Deputies told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth the mother sent to a text message to the father saying she planned to drop the boy off with him Wednesday. The woman faces a child abandonment charge, a third-degree felony in the Lone Star State. Spring, Texas is about 20 miles from Houston.

Later that night, the woman dropped the boy at the neighbour's house.

The video shows her approaching the door quickly and dumping the boy and his belongings down.
