FLORIDA A 47-year-old man was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child after two toddlers were found walking around alone early Friday morning.
On July 20, 2017 at about 8:20 a.m., New York State Police and Village of Florida Police responded to a report of two abandoned toddlers at S.S. Seward Institution located at 51 North Main St., according to state police in Monroe.
School officials located a one-year-old and a two-year-old boy walking around the school grounds. One child was naked and one child was in diapers with a minor head injury.
Responding officers were able to locate the children’s father, Patrick Tibby, 47, who was found sleeping on a mattress inside his residence. The house was located behind the school, according to State Police Trooper Nevel.
The toddlers were taken to Saint Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick for evaluation. Child Protective Service responded and removed the children from Tibby’s custody, according to state police.
Tibby was arrested and released on his own recognizance, pending a future court date in the Village of Florida. In addition to the two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, Tibby is charged with one count of second-degree obstructing governmental administration.
