Florham Park police charge grandmother
with Child Abuse

FLORHAM PARK, NJ  –  A grandmother is facing a child abuse charge after leaving her 4-year-old grandson in a car while she went to the dentist, police said.

At 12:35 p.m. on Feb. 4, police responded to the parking lot of 25 Hanover Road to investigate a report that a 4-year-old boy had been found wandering in the parking lot, police said.

Officer Thomas Belli was able to determine that the child had been left in a vehicle while his grandmother was at a dentist appointment in an adjacent building, police said.

Officer Jared Orgel responded to the dentist’s office and located the child’s grandmother, Dawn M. Todd, 56, of Irvington, and determined that she had left the boy in the vehicle because he was asleep and she did not want to wake him, police said.

Todd had taken two other grandchildren, ages seven and nine, into the dentist office with her, police said.

The New Jersey Department of Children and Families was contacted and responded.  The children were released to the custody of their parents.

Todd was transported to Florham Park Police Headquarters where she was charged with child abuse and then released pending a future Superior Court appearance.
