Just after 5 Monday afternoon, Richmond Police responded to Big Hill Avenue for a small child walking unaccompanied in the area.

Officers said a three-year-old child had crossed a parking lot and Big Hill Avenue before being picked up by a passer-by who called police.

It was 38 degrees outside and the toddler was only dressed in a diaper, according to investigators.

Police said Robert Short, 54, was supposed to be watching the child. They determined that Short was not aware the three-year-old had left the home, nor did he notify authorities upon discovering that the child was missing.

Short was charged for Wanton Endangerment 2nd Degree and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
