HITCHCOCK, Texas (AP) - Two men have been arrested after police say they left two children inside a locked car for about 30 minutes outside a Texas gas station.

The Galveston County Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/Usqc7H ) 26-year-old Chase Everett Jackson and 20-year-old Jamaree Holmes were arrested Thursday in Hitchcock. They’re each charged with one count of abandoning and endangering a child.

Police removed the two children from the car. Police chief Clay Kennelly says the children were unharmed but taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Kennelly says he doesn’t know how old the children are. He says the relationship between the two men and children wasn’t immediately clear.

The Galveston County clerk’s office says records do not show an attorney for either man.
