HOUSTON -

A couple has been accused of leaving two children alone in an apartment.

Alaina Riley, 19, and Darryl John Leblanc, 28, have been charged with abandoning a child and possession of a controlled substance.

Houston police said they were asked to do a welfare check at a home in the 8900 block of South Gessner about 3 a.m. Saturday.

Officers went to the home and said they found the front door was unlocked. They went inside and found a 4-year-old and a 1-month-old asleep on the floor, investigators said.

The children were taken to a Children's Protective Services office. Riley and Leblanc were arrested when they went to pick up the children.

Detectives said the couple claimed that they left the children with a babysitter but did not provide any information about that person.
