Last updated on Tuesday, June 8, 2010

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - A Bloomington man was arrested over the weekend when officers discovered his 4-year-old daughter wandering barefoot in the middle of busy street.

35-year-old Domingo Macedo wasn't home when several drivers and pedestrians called 911 concerned about the child as she played outside alone.

The man later informed police that he had left his daughter with the unknown woman expecting his ex-girlfriend to pick up the child at 8:00AM.

Officers was arrested Macedo at Texas Roadhouse on a preliminary charge of neglecting a dependent.

Police say that the girl was not hurt and was released to her 23-year-old mother.
