Sorry,Low-Down Woman left baby in stroller outside bar

August 21, 2011

A Daytona Beach mother was arrested and charged with child neglect after police say she left 5-year-old child who was in her care in a stroller outside a bar while she was inside the bar drinking

It happened around 9:45 p.m. Thursday at a bar on E. Orange Avenue in Daytona Beach.

According to the arrest report, Sarah Lynn Cheek, 34, went to the bar with the 5-year-old child and told the child to, ”Stay here. I’m going to get you a candy bar.” The report says bar patrons saw the child outside the bar alone and called police who arrested Cheek and charged her with child neglect.

Police transported the child back home and made contact with the child’s father who told officers that his 14-year-old daughter was watching the 5-year-old while he was sleeping and that Cheek asked the teen if it was alright to take the child for a walk. The teen agreed and Cheek left with the child.

Daytona Beach Police notified DCF of the incident and they are investigating what happened.
