Police say they found a 3-year-old girl wandering in a parking lot while her mother worked inside a South Florida strip club.
Police say that someone called 911 early Tuesday after seeing a child roaming around.
Santiago says the child led officers to a vehicle that wasn’t running and had the back window cracked for ventilation.
Police say about 30 minutes later 23-year-old Manouchika Daniels walked up and identified herself at the child’s mother.
They determined that Daniels left the girl about 11 p.m. Monday while she worked at a strip club. She’s charged with child neglect and was ordered held without bond.
The child was taken into protective custody.
