A Long Island mother is facing charges after police say she left her four young children home along overnight. Police were called to the Selden home at approximately 10:30 a.m. Tuesday when four boys were seen playing near their home with no supervision.

When police arrived, they found a 2-year-old boy sitting in a stroller in front of the house and his three brothers outside the house. Witnesses stated that the mother, Robin Reese, left her house at approximately 2 a.m.

Reese's four boys, ages, 2, 5, 7 and 8, indicated that they were hungry and police officers fed them and also changed the 2-year-old's diaper.

The officers contacted Child Protective Services. As they were waiting for CPS to arrive, the mother came home at 11:46 a.m., when she was arrested.

Reese, 38, was charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
