DOWNTOWN — A 32-year-old Burbank man was arrested late Thursday on suspicion of child endangerment after authorities found his 2-year-old girl wandering the sidewalk at Orange Grove Avenue and Sixth Street.
Ricardo Garcia was arrested after telling officers that he was unaware his 2-year-old daughter was roaming the streets unsupervised.
Officers were called to the area about 12:30 p.m. Thursday after a letter carrier found the girl, Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn said.
Patrol officers walked the child around the area hoping to find her parents before taking her to police headquarters and contacting the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
