Man accused of endangering 2 kids

A Springfield man was placed in Clark County Jail on two counts of endangering children after a 2-year-old boy was found alone about 10 a.m. Thursday running after a dog in the 1300 block of North Limestone Street.

Police allege Cory M. Hill, 21, of 254 Ridge Road, was supposed to be watching the boy and a 1-year-old girl at his home, but was asleep when the boy left the home through the back door and out the back gate, according to a report.

The woman who found them put the child and the dog in her vehicle and drove around the area, but was unable to locate an adult responsible for him, and called police.

While officers were staging in the area for an organized search, Hill pulled up in a vehicle with a female witness and told them he’s the one who watches the children. The girl was then located at home alone. STAFF REPORT
