(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus grandmother was arrested on child neglect charges after her grandchild was found wandering on The Commons playground covered in his own waste.

Columbus police were called to the indoor playground at about 4:40 p.m. Sunday afternoon after a two-year-old boy was found on the indoor playground covered in feces.

Other parents cleaned the boy up and changed his diaper but could not find an adult responsible for him.

The child was taken to the police station and Child Protective Services was alerted.

At about 5:30 p.m., 51-year-old Brenda J. Fox came to the police station and said she was the child's grandmother. She claimed that she never saw police looking for the child's guardian.

Fox was arrested on a charge of child neglect and the boy was released to the custody of his parents.
