ROYALTON — A Gasport couple charged Sunday with child endangerment after their three-year-old son reportedly crossed Rochester Road unsupervised was arraigned Tuesday night in town court.

The couple is due back in court on June 12.

According to the original police report, Louis Renna and Michelle Renna, both 44, told patrol they thought they had left their three-year-old in the care of their 13-year-old, but the teen boy said he was not informed he was supposed to be watching his little brother.

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office became involved because the three-year-old was found unsupervised at Dollar General, 8405 Rochester Road — across the busy road from his home. The people who found the small boy took him to his home, which he pointed out, but were unable to find anyone there, so they called police.

When patrol arrived, they found the older brother who said he was unaware where his parents were. Numerous attempts by patrol to contact the parents failed over the course of about three hours, according to the report. Patrol also found that "the home was not in an acceptable condition to have the children living in," the report said, causing sheriff's deputies to call Child Protective Services.

When the parents did return home, about three hours after the original call, they appeared unconcerned that their three-year-old had crossed Rochester Road, according to the report.

They were later charged with endangering the welfare of a child. The couple was processed at Niagara County Jail Tuesday night.
