Nassau County police arrested Jessie McFadden, a 21-year-old resident of Jerusalem Ave in Hicksville, NY, for endangering the welfare of two children. Police reports say McFadden’s daughter and her sister were left unattended in his house in what they describe as unsafe conditions. Luckily, the 8 month old and 6 year old girls were found unharmed, even though they were within reach of alcohol and prescription drugs for at least an hour unsupervised. The girls were released in their mother’s custody. McFadden was charged with two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child. He was released on his own recognizance after pleading not guilty.
On the same day, another man was arrested for child endangerment. Hempstead resident Juan Alvizures was taken to the Sixth Precinct Police Station after officers found his daughter alone in his car. They say she was in the unlocked minivan for approximately 4 hours while he was working. Police took the child to the hospital to be evaluated. Alvizures was held overnight and was going to be arraigned the next morning.
