A Glen Rock man is charged with endangering the welfare of a child after allegedly leaving his 19 month-old daughter alone in his unlocked apartment. It happened on July 13th. Police say Gregory Polson, 26, of Main Street, left a note for a family member that he was late for work. Polston told police that the family member usually arrives by the time he leaves for work. Polston said he had no way of contacting the family member and didn’t know what to do. He put his daughter down for a nap, wrote the note, and left for work.
It is unknown exactly how long the daughter was left unattended but appeared to be anywhere from fifteen minutes to a half an hour prior to the family member arriving. Polson is charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Recklessly Endangering Another Person. He is free after posting $20,000 bail.
