CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Fort Campbell man has been charged with child neglect after police say they found a toddler left alone in the back of an unlocked car.

Clarksville police arrested 23-year-old Dearius Delvon Oliver on early Saturday morning. The Leaf-Chronicle reported (https://leafne.ws/1w2INWL ) that a person checking parking permits at an apartment complex noticed the child in the vehicle and called police.

Police say Oliver approached the car just after officers arrived and said he had been trying to find a place to sleep for the night and had only been gone 10 minutes. A witness said Oliver had been away from the car for at least 45 minutes.

Oliver was charged with child abuse and transported to the Montgomery County Jail. Jail records did not list an attorney for Oliver.
