A Bristow woman was arrested Wednesday after police say her 4-year-old called 911 complaining of hunger.
The 43-year-old mother was arrested and charged with felony child neglect, authorities said.
Police found the 4-year-old boy at 8:34 a.m. alone in a home on Frank Haskell Court in an affluent Bristow neighborhood off Route 28, Prince William County Police reports show.
The suspect eventually returned home from running errands and, following an investigation, was arrested. It is not clear how long she was gone from the residence, police said.
She was released on her own recognizance from the Prince William County Detention Center in Manassas.
The boy is now in the custody of family members.
