Mom charged with leaving son, 6, home alone

A mother was arrested Wednesday on a charge that she left her 6-year-old son alone at home, a Richmond County sheriff's report states.

A deputy was sent to the Westchester Apartments in the 2900 block of Arrowhead Drive around 4:30 a.m. for a welfare check on the child. He said he found the child alone, but was able to reach the child's mother, Chiquita Chapman, through a neighbor.

Chapman was arrested on a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and the child was removed from the home by a state social worker.
