A man leaves his children unattended on the front porch of their mother's home. 

It happened Tuesday on Cypress Street Court in Chattanooga.  When police arrived they met the mother, who said she had dropped the children off at their dad's, Dequon Daniels. The children were to stay with him for few days.  

The mother told police that her sister called, telling her that Daniels had dropped of the children early and left, abandoning them.  The mother called police as she was leaving work to pick up the children.

Daniels is charged with child abuse and neglect.  He is scheduled for court July 2, 2015.
