An Aiken man is charged with Cruelty to Children following an incident in which passersby found the child wandering alone. According to an incident report, the 3-year-old boy was wearing no shoes, no socks and a short-sleeved shirt while he was playing in a water puddle along Richland Avenue. This happened on a January day when the outside temperature was just 35 degrees.

The women who found the child put him in a heated car and bundled him with blankets until Public Safety Officers could arrive. As officers were interviewing witnesses, David Green walked up the street with a to-go box of wings in his hand. He told investigators that he had walked to a restaurant to get food and had been gone for about 30 minutes.
