Kyheid Alquon Carolina, 18, and Christiana Evelyn Price, 23, of 101 Stonehaven Drive, Greenwood were arrested Wednesday and charged with unlawful neglect to a child.
On Sept. 12, Greenwood County deputies helped police with a traffic stop in the area of Eat Cambridge Avenue and spoke with the two people in the car, according to a report. A woman told officers she needed to get home because she had a 5-year-old child asleep at home and that a man she lives with had left the child there to come pick her up.
The woman told police that they had made arrangements for a relative who lives next door to watch the child, but officers learned that relative did not live next door and no one had been left with the child, the report said. Officers eventually got the key to the apartment and learned there were two children left alone and sleeping there.
