COMPTON, CA – Compton Sheriff’s officers responded to a bizarre 9-1-1 call of a woman dancing nude on on her front lawn with a baby resting nearby.
Deputies responded to the area of Wilmington Ave and Caldwell St. regarding an indecent exposure call for service. Upon their arrival, they contacted an informant that told them “a female adult was completely nude and dancing on a front lawn with a baby laying nearby.
She then got in a car and drove away with the baby. The informant who followed the vehicle directed deputies to the suspect vehicle at which time a traffic stop was made. Upon contacting the driver, they saw she was entirely nude with the 3-week old baby sitting on her lap.
The woman was taken into custody and the baby was taken for safety reasons. The deputies observed signs indicative of mental illness so the suspect was held for a mental evaluation and charged with child endangerment.
“Thank God for a beautiful outcome. And yes, the baby is well and truly adorable,” the department said in a statement.
