When a Virginia man awoke from a nap, his 2-year-old son missing. The boy was found, but now the father is not allowed to see his son.
When his fiance left the house to turn in a job application, Rose got up and locked the front door. He said his son was asleep in his bed.
Rose fell asleep, but when one of his roommates left the house, the chain on the door was left unlocked.
While he was sleeping, Rose’s 2-year-old son some how got out of the house. He said someone saw his son outside just a ways down from his home and called Chesterfield Police.
As a result, Rose was charged with abuse and neglect of a child, which is a felony.
“I can’t come home to my own son because he got out of the house…he just wanted to have fun, he’s an adventurous little boy,” Rose said.
Rose said that he’s not trying to downplay the situation, and wants people to know he loves and cares for his son.
“These are serious things that have happened,” said Rose. “These are things that no parent should have to go through and should prevent.”
Rose said his next court date is October 22.
