A father named Toru Sakaguchi was arrested this past Black Friday in upstate New York and it was because he abandoned his children to go pick up his wife who was shopping!!!
The Town of Woodbury Police said they received a call from the Hampton Inn in Central Valley where a four-year-old boy had been found walking around the halls at 4am and was crying because his father was nowhere to be found.
When the hotel staff went to the boy’s room they found an 11-year-old handicapped girl inside by herself. That is when they called the police, and also called the father to tell him to return immediately.
At 4:36 a.m. the father and his wife came back. The father said he had left at 3am and had to wait over an hour to pick up his wife who was shopping.
However he was subsequently arrested for endangering the welfare of a child. He’s due back in court on December 10th.
Absolutely not cool on this guy’s part for leaving his children totally and utterly alone without even letting the hotel staff know!
Hopefully this’ll teach him to never do that again!!!
