Child welfare charge laid

A local man was arrested last week after his toddler ran across a street unattended.

Timothy W. Crawford, 29, of Whitehall, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, after police received reports of a two-year-old child in only a diaper running across a street unattended.

The child had run to a playground and a passerby waited there until police arrived.

Crawford was allegedly responsible for the supervision of the child at the time.

Police had to check a number of area residences before locating Crawford in a house across the street from the playground.

He was issued a ticket to appear in court at a later date the case was referred to Child Protective Services.

The case was handled by Whitehall Police Chief Matt Dickinson and Patrolman Tim Hardy.
