Police said when officers arrived so did the girl's father, Joshua Moreno, but only for a short time.  Police said Moreno took off running back to his apartment because “He left his Madden game unpaused and needed to pause the game.”

Police said they found bottles of moldy formula, old pizza in every room and a Mountain Dew bottle with a hypodermic needle inside.

Moreno’s charges include child endangerment.
