Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A Colorado faces abuse charges after his toddler-aged son was found wandering the streets alone in the middle of the night.

Rocklynn Maldonado, 12, said she was sitting at home when she heard the door knob of her front door jiggle. Then she heard someone talking on the other side.

That someone was a 3-year-old boy who had wandered away from home.

It turns out police said the boy walked nearly ten blocks. When  his father was tracked down and called, he refused to come pick up his son.

The toddler was placed in foster care and his dad was arrested for child abuse.
