A Meriden woman was arrested last weekend after Danbury police say she left her 3-year-old child behind to attend a party, according to a report in the Danbury News Times.
Monica Panora, 35, was arrested Sunday and charged with risk of injury to a minor.
According to the report, Panora told police she left her child in the care of the child's uncle, identified as Rafael Freire-Recuenco, 36, of Danbury, so she could go to a party.
But police were called to a home on Town Hill Aveunue around midnight after a neighbor reported that the child was outside and "pacing back and forth, knocking on the door."
Freire-Recuenco is also charged with risk of injury to a minor.
