Mother leaves her 4, 2, and 9-month old children home alone; charged with child neglect

34-year-old Denshia Majors was charged with three counts of child neglect, assault, disorderly conduct, resisting, and evading arrest after police observed two of her children playing in a parking lot unattended and her 9-month-old child laying in her unlocked home, all wearing only soiled diapers. She still had not returned home within an hour of police calling her.

On April 2nd, officers were dispatched to 508 Peyton Circle, in reference to two small children in the parking lot unattended. When they arrived at the scene they found the children, ages 4 and 2, outside in soiled diapers. There was a witness, Ranada Bridges, who saw the children outside. The officer entered the home through the unlocked front door to find a 9-month-old baby on the couch in a soiled diaper. They were able to contact the mother, defendant Denshia Majors, hours later who said that she was on her way back to the apartment. Officers noted that after an hour of talking with her, she still had not returned to the home.

On July 18th, there was a noise complaint at the same apartment where officers informed they were there earlier for a disorderly subject, Denshia Majors. Majors had active warrants from the child neglect that the officer knew of. When the officer arrived she saw Majors standing at the top of the stairs. As Majors was coming down the stairs towards the officer she ran from her and hid under a vehicle. The officer reached under the vehicle to place Majors into custody and she bit the officer’s arm.

Denshia Majors was arrested and charged with three counts of child neglect, assault on an officer, disorderly conduct, resisting, and evading arrest. Her bond was set at $12,500.
