Cops called to same apartment twice for kids home alone

Cops called to same apartment twice for kids home alone

Twice in days, 5th District Police found kids home alone in the same apartment.

Back on July 9, a woman saw a child in a window sill at the apartment at E. 160th and Lakeshore.

Police say they found 7 kids home alone from two different families.  No food either.

Then on July 24, a 2-year-old was found home alone in the same apartment.  Again no food and trash all over.

Ed Gallek went to look for both moms, who live in different apartments in the same complex, but he wasn't able to find them.

Kelly Hodges has been charged with child endangering in both cases.  Denise Polk has been charged in one case.

Police say the 2-year-old was so desperate for food, they took the child across the street to McDonald's and he devoured a meal.
