Children found on street, mother arrested

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo mother is facing charges of endangering the welfare of a child after her children were found on a street in Buffalo.

Police say a 29-year-old woman left her twin 3-year-old children home alone and they made their way out of the house. The children, police say, were dirty and did not have shoes on.

Multiple calls rang out from concerned citizens who saw the children walking alone. That led to the arrest of Damaris Santiago. She’ll return to court at a later date.

Police did not say if the children would be returned to the custody of the mother. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
