Canton, Ohio Toddler Found Stuck in Toilet at Home While Mother Shopped at Wal-Mart; Parents Arrested

Two people in Ohio are facing charges after their 20-month-old son was found stuck in a toilet after being left home alone.

Police were called to an apartment on Kingston Drive Southeast in Canton on Thursday after neighbors reported hearing a child crying for more than 30 minutes, according to WJW.

A maintenance worker building complex allowed police inside the apartment where they found the 20-month-old boy stuck in a toilet.

The child was home alone at the time, according to police. Officers freed the boy from the toilet and notified Child Protective Services.

Officers also located three marijuana plants inside the home.

The child’s mother, Justice Chance, 20, was found two hours later walking up to the apartment complex while carrying Wal-Mart bags.  Investigators believe she left the child alone and went shopping at the store.

Chance told police her sister was supposed to be babysitting the child but she could not provide police her sister’s last name, according to The Independent.

Chance and the boy’s father, Rashaan Cuffee, 20, were each charged with child endangering and marijuana cultivation.
