A Florida man was arrested this week for allegedly leaving his 5 year old daughter alone and scared in a haunted house for 2 hours.
Charles Jones, 35, was at a haunted house in Merritt Island when he abandoned the little girl. Someone inside the house found the scared child and watched her for an hour while searching for a parent.
The man is accused of leaving the child alone for more than two hours. Jones, authorities alleged, left the child unattended "with no reasonable effort to provide care for her" and without intending to pick her up.
Jones eventually turned himself in to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office. Jones was charged with child neglect and was booked on a $3,000 bond.
