HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police are investigating after they say a two-year-old girl was found alone and covered in feces in a Hartford apartment.

NECN reports (https://bit.ly/1nxyXfj) that a downstairs neighbor called police after she discovered that the child was alone upstairs.

Police responding to the scene Friday said the apartment was covered with feces and urine. There were also two small dogs in the apartment.

Police say the child’s mother was on her way home from work at the time of the incident.

They say the child was unharmed but was taken to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, which is standard protocol. The state Department of Children and Families was notified.

The child’s mother and stepfather are cooperating with police.

It’s unclear whether anyone will face charges.
