According to a story from the Globe Gazette, a pair of parents are being accused of child endangerment.

This entire ordeal began on June 12th of this year. Authorities were called to the 900 block of Linn Street around 7:15 AM that morning. Neighbors reported seeing a four-year-old boy wandering around by himself wearing only a diaper.

Reports say that the child had come from a home nearly a block away on Ricker Street.


Reports claim that the parents were actually intoxicated AND that this first incident was reported to the proper authorities.

On Friday August 5th, around 8:30 AM the child was spotted running from his home naked. He had run about a block and a half away from his home and sustained what seems to be a minor cut on his toe, according to the Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier.


The child's parents, Trisha Likaro and Mike Selikar were both arrested the very next day. Both are facing charges of misdemeanor child endangerment for these incidents.

Officials say that these two have been released pending trial.

There is still no word on the specific details that caused the child to have been left wandering the streets of Waterloo by himself.
