A Connecticut woman is facing charges after her 3-year-old son was found alone in a Bridgeport park. Javan Odom was found about 7:30 last night by another mother who was with her own children.

Tonya Odom claims her son was with his siblings at the park, but they came home without him.

She's now charged with risk of injury to a minor.

The 3-year-old is in protective custody.
