Father arrested after child found wandering streets in Ottawa

ARREST

A 2-year old child is safe after he was found wandering the streets in Ottawa.

Police say just after 10:30am Wednesday, someone reported  a child walking in the street at the intersection of east 5th and south Mulberry Street in Ottawa.

Officers checked with residences near the area and were unable to find the child’s home or parent.

The child’s picture was distributed through the police department’s twitter account asking for help identifying him.

A tip led police to the father’s home about a block from where the child was found.

Detectives took the 2 year-old and a 6-month old boy found at the home into protective custody.

The father 28-year-old Justin Vogeler was arrested for endangering a child and is currently being held in the Franklin County Adult Detention Center until a court appearance.
