Child endangerment charged have been filed against a Jersey City woman who allegedly left her five young children home alone for at least two hours.
Twenty-seven-year-old Shanna Robinson was arrested early Wednesday after she went to a hospital where authorities had taken her children as a precaution.
The Jersey Journal reports that Robinson told officers she had gone to the store at 10 p.m. Tuesday to buy milk and lost track of the time.
The children -- who range in age from 3 months to 8 years -- were discovered when police responded to their home around 10:20 p.m., after someone called there 911 and hung up.
Officers say all the children appeared to be in good health.
