29-year-old Sarai Flores-Lechuga was charged with misdemeanor child abuse after she failed to pick up her kindergartner from the Durant Road Elementary School bus stop after school let out at around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23.
When police began looking into the matter, they realized she also left her other three children without supervision at a house in the 3200 block of Calumet Drive. The children were aged one to eight, and were left alone at the same time the kindergartner was not picked up from school. Police officers were called to the site of the bus stop after the school bus driver informed them of the situation. They were able to confirm that Flores-Lechuga had custody of her children, but they could not get in contact with her on Tuesday. Flores-Lechuga was arrested on Wednesday, August 24 and was able to post bail during the same day.
