A mother in the Bronx was taken into police custody Monday night. She is accused of leaving her three young children home alone in their Westchester Square apartment.

The woman was led out of the building on Benson Street in handcuffs.

Police say they were called to the building for a possible gas leak.

Once inspectors went inside the basement apartment, they found the three children alone without supervision.

Charges have not yet been filed against the mother.
