UPDATE @ 5:20 p.m. (July 21)
The mother of a 3-year-old boy who fell out of a second-story window Wednesday is jailed on a misdemeanor child endangerment charge.
Brooklyn LeMaster, 21, is accused of leaving her son and 1-year-old daughter alone in their apartment in the 5100 block of Embassy Place when her son, 3, fell out of the window, which did not have a screen, according to a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office report.
LeMaster told deputies she was only gone for two to three minutes, but a neighbor said left her children unattended for about a half hour, the report stated.
Inside, the residence was messy and there was feces smeared on one of her child’s beds, according to the report. LeMaster had no prior charges for child endangering, and Montgomery County Children Services was contacted about the incident. The boy suffered only minor injuries. He and his sister were placed in the care of their grandmother, according to the report.
LeMaster remains held on $2,500 bond in the Montgomery County Jail. She is next scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, online jail records show. Although a sheriff’s office report lists LeMaster as 41, her jail booking shows she is 21.
