Child Abandonment @ 2100 Royal Lane


On Sunday, March 29, 2015 at approximately 9:31 a.m., officers responded to a call at the King Spa located in the 2100 block of Royal Lane. The caller, Alicia Carroll, B/F/28, reported to officers that she left her child with a friend the night before and she could not locate her.

After further investigation, officers determined that Ms. Carroll had exited the King Spa business with the child on March 28, 2015 at approximately 10:00 p.m., and then left the location without the child. The staff at King Spa stated that Ms. Carroll was asked to leave after she brought alcohol into the premise, which was against the business’s policy. Multiple patrol units and Air1 responded to the location and began a search for the child. During the search, at approximately 11:15 a.m., officers were flagged down by some citizens who previously observed the child. After officers located the child, a B/F/7, near the original offense location, she was taken to Children’s Medical Center for treatment but was not injured.

Detectives believe that Ms. Carroll and her daughter climbed into a dumpster at 11300 Newkirk because Ms. Carroll thought that police had been called and were chasing her.  Sometime, during the night, Ms. Carroll left her daughter in the dumpster and could not remember anything the following morning.

A Child Protective Services referral was completed, and the child is currently in foster care with CPS. Ms. Carroll was arrested and charged with Abandoning a Child in Imminent Danger F/2 Penal Code 22.041.  She has no previous arrests and her bond has been set at $25,000.

This offense is documented on case number 069236-2015.
