A College Station woman was arrested for abandoning or endangering a child after she left three young children at home alone while she confronted her ex-boyfriend.

Police said the oldest of the children was 5 years old. 

College Station police said the three children were left under the care of 23-year-old Terica Thurmon on Sunday night.

Police were called to investigate a civil disturbance in the area of Southwest Parkway and Dartmouth Street when they discovered the children had been left alone at a nearby house. They were left alone for about one hour before Thurmon was contacted by police.

The children were not injured or harmed during the time they were left alone.
