Toddler found wandering the streets, mother arrested

WACO, TX (KXXV) - A 41-year-old woman is behind bars after her 2-year-old child was found wandering into a Waco convenience store by herself at 2 a.m. Monday morning while the mother was at a nightclub.

Police were called to the 1800 block of Lyle after a toddler was found wandering into Skinny's Convenience Store alone. Responding officers took her into custody, and said she was shaking from being in the night air. The 2-year-old girl could not show or tell officers where she lived.

Officers bought the baby a snack of her choice, a “King Size” Kit-Kat bar, and the store gave her water. ETMC responded and checked on the toddler's condition. One of the officers rode with the child in the ambulance to Providence Hospital for her check-up.

Additional officers were called to the area to search door-to-door in order to find where the child lived and find her parents.

About 45 minutes into the search, police report they found the mother of the child. The mother, identified as Roxana Nicole Holmes, told police she left the toddler sleeping by herself in their home in the 1900 block of Lyle.

Holmes then went to a nightclub, before returning to her boyfriend's house in the area, without checking on the child. Police report she found out the child had wandered away only when officers found her walking back to the house at 2:45 a.m.

Roxana Holmes was arrested at the scene and has been charged with 2nd degree felony of child abandonment.

The toddler is in good condition after being checked at Providence Hospital. She was later released to family members. CPS has been notified.
