An Arizona mother was arrested after she allegedly left her young daughter home alone while she went out partying. Alexandra Ciliento, 29, left her house around 11 p.m. Saturday while her 4-year-old daughter remained at home.
While she was out, the young girl managed to escape and make her way over to a neighbor’s house. The neighbor waited 45 minutes before calling police, who were finally able to reach Ciliento around 8:00 the next morning.
She admitted to Scottsdale police that she left her apartment and didn’t try to get a babysitter. Additionally, Ciliento “was not aware that her child could open a locked door and leave the residence.” Her daughter is now in the custody of her father, and Ciliento isn’t allowed to see her. Online records show that she was charged with one count of child abuse.
