ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - An Elyria man arrested after his one-year-old son was found wandering the street in his pajamas.

It happened Friday evening on Barbara Street near Allen Street.

Officers were in the area on another police matter when they heard the little boy crying.

Police picked up the child and went looking for his parents. They found a front door open and Tyrone McCullum sleeping on the coach.

The 20-year-old told police he and the boy were sleeping together. He also said the door was locked, but the child must have opened it.

McCullum is charged with child endangering. He also had an outstanding warrant from North Olmsted.

The little boy is now with his mom.
