LORAIN, Ohio (www.theindychannel.com) -- A woman was arrested after police found her grandson alone and crawling on the sidewalk.

Officers were called to a house in Lorain, Ohio on Wednesday and according to the police report, this was the Lorain Police Department’s 33rd visit this year to the home. Neighbors told police they often see children hanging out of windows and running in the streets without clothes.

An officer found the 1-year-old boy crawling down the sidewalk in a soiled diaper with no one else around, the report said. A nurse driving by stopped to help the officer and said it appeared the child may have been eating dirt.

Paramedics were called to the house and the baby was taken to the hospital, WEWS reported.

Marsheen Price, 35, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor child endangering. Police said Price has seven children and grandchildren in the home.

Children’s services removed the children and placed some of them with a paternal grandmother.
