Man Facing Child Neglect Charge After Leaving Young Girl Alone In Haunted House

MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) — Brevard County Sheriff’s Office deputies have arrested a man on a child neglect charge after they say he left a young girl alone at a haunted house on Florida’s Space Coast.
Charles Jones was arrested Thursday, Halloween night, after turning himself in at a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office precinct.
An arrest report has the girl’s age and relationship to Jones redacted, but WFTV in Orlando reports the girl is the 5-year-old daughter of Jones.
Deputies were called to the Merritt Island haunted house after other parents found the girl unsupervised. The arrest report says she was scared after being left at the house for 2 1/2 hours.
Court records show Jones has an attorney from the public defender’s office. The attorney couldn’t be reached Saturday.
