A Davenport man who is accused of leaving his 5-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son at home alone for 45 minutes is charged with two counts of child endangerment.
Demario M. Walker, 21, was being held Thursday in the Scott County Jail after his arrest earlier in the week.
Police were dispatched Monday afternoon to the 600 block of Pershing Avenue to investigate a report of a child who was unable to find her father, according to Walker’s arrest affidavit.
Police received the call about 4:15 p.m. After officers arrived, Walker showed up at 5:05 p.m., the affidavit states.
Walker had left his daughter and son at home alone in an apartment in the 200 block of East 7th Street, the affidavit states.
While he was gone, the daughter went looking for Walker and crossed the street by herself in temperatures below 32 degrees, the affidavit states.
