Northwest Florida

ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — (February 23, 2021) — A second person has been charged after three kids were left home alone and locked inside a room.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO) arrested 23-year-old Fayonna Hixon. Hixon and Christain Parson, are charged with three counts of child neglect.

On December 30, sheriff’s deputies say they went to an apartment where they found an infant dropping toys out of a broken window on the second floor. ECSO says they didn’t get an answer at the door so a deputy climbed through the window.

Officials say they found three children locked in a room, with cables on the outside so they couldn’t get out. It turns out one of the children used a toy to break the bedroom window.

Deputies say the children were found sitting in their own feces. As were two malnourished dogs in cages.

The department of children and families took the three kids. Both suspects are in the Escambia county jail with $300,000 bonds.

ORIGINAL STORY (February 19, 2021) — A Pensacola man accused of leaving three children in deplorable conditions was arrested Thursday.

Christain Hakeem Parson, 30, is charged with child neglect and marijuana possession.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrest report says deputies responded to an apartment in Escambia County on Dec. 30. The address is redacted in the report.

When they arrived, they found “a young infant” reaching out of a broken bedroom window,” the report says.

No one answered the door when knocking, according to deputies, so a deputy entered the home through the window.

Deputies found three children had been locked inside a bedroom with a charging cable, according to the report. Deputies found the children in the corner of the bedroom wearing only diapers — sitting in their own feces.

Deputies say the cord was wrapped around a door handle and attached to another door handle, making it impossible for the children to get out.

Inside a separate bedroom, deputies also found two malnourished dogs covered in fleas and their own feces.

Feces were also spread on the walls of a bedroom, according to deputies.

Deputies say they found mail belonging to Parson in the home, along with 550 grams of marijuana.

Parson was arrested Thursday after an investigation. He is being held in the Escambia County jail on a $305,000 bond.

The children are in the custody of another family member. Animal Control took possession of the dogs.
