CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Clarksville Police have charged a couple after their infant was found alone in a motel room.
Robert Louis Calles Jr. and Brittany Faith Calles are charged with child abuse and neglect after a woman who saw the couple leave the motel without the child called the front desk. A clerk knocked repeatedly on the door and thought she heard a child cry. She opened the room and found the 9-month-old child wrapped in a blanket on the bed.
Police said the 19-year-old father and 18-year-old mother arrived about a half-hour later and gave different stories of why and how long the child was left alone.
The baby is in the custody of the Department of Children's Services.
