Police responded to an argument between a boyfriend and girlfriend at their Pine Street apartment after the girlfriend had left for the night in her boyfriend’s truck — abandoning their two-and-a-half year old son— and came back to retrieve some clothes, a Jefferson Police Department incident report states.
The officer asked the boyfriend to allow his girlfriend to get some clothes and let her leave again to cool off. While she was inside supposedly getting clothes, she woke the child up and announced that he was going with her. The officer told her she could return the following day and take the boy, but because she abandoned him during the night, he would stay with his father. The father told police he would get in touch with an attorney to try to get custody of the child.
