(LAFAYETTE) — A mother was arrested in Lafayette after her 2-year-old son was found wandering in the middle of the street.

A stranger found the little boy in the middle of Shenandoah Drive on Sunday, reports WLFI-TV.

Police took the boy and drove around the neighborhood until they found a house with an open door.

Inside the home was Michelle Lovvorn, who identified herself as the boy’s mother.

Lovvorn is charged with child neglect.

The little boy and a 6-year-old were removed from the home by the Dept. of Child Services.
