A Wayne County woman was arrested following reports of a small child walking down the road alone around 1 a.m. on Monday, September 26.

Ashley Smith, 32, of Lyons, was arrested on Monday and charged with endangering a child.


The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office says the child was found wearing just shorts.

Police say a similar situation occurred in August.

Smith didn’t take the necessary precautions to prevent the same situation from happening again, police say.

She is being held at the Wayne County Jail awaiting arraignment, according to reporting from News10.
