An Iola man was taken into custody Monday after a 4-year-old child was found left unattended and locked in a house for several hours earlier in the day.
The Allen County Sheriffs Department reported that Blayke Anthony Reynolds, 22, was arrested for suspicion of aggravated endangerment of a child, criminal restraint and causing a child to become a child in need of care.
The arrest stemmed from an incident late Monday afternoon in which neighbors heard the child banging on a bedroom window and asking for someone to unlock his door at a residence at 603 S. Ohio St., according to the ACSD report.
