E Rusk Ave


Wednesday evening, a citizen found a 5-year-old boy standing outside by himself near E Rusk Ave. Officers responded and soon reunited the child with a parent who called to report that his 5 year old was never dropped off by bus after school. Further investigation revealed that the child remained on the bus after all the stops were made, and the bus driver had parked the bus and left for the night. Officers contacted the bus company and the MMSD and both are conducting their own investigations into the incident.  No criminal charges pending at this time.
