ANSONIA, CT (WFSB) - Two people in Ansonia were arrested after police received calls about a little boy on a roof.
David Hustek, 23, and 20-year-old Sarah Barker face risk of injury to a minor and first-degree reckless endangerment charges.
Police said they were called around 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday to a home on Main Street.
An eyewitness shared Snapchat video with Channel 3 showing the toddler on top of the roof. See it here.
Officers said they found a 2-year-old boy on the roof of the home, which was about 30 feet off the ground.
One of the officers was able to convince the child to not move while up there.
Another officer forced entry into the home and found Hustek, the child's father, and Barker, the child's aunt, asleep and unaware of what happened.
“They were both sleeping. Actually when the officers forced entry they woke them up. That’s what alerted them to the situation of the child being out on the roof," said Ansonia Police Lt. Patrick Lynch.
The Snapchat video shows Hustek eventually pulling the boy back inside through the third floor window.
A short time later, officers took him and Barker into custody.
The child was transported to a local hospital for precautionary reasons.
“At 2 years old, the balance isn’t always the best, he’s 30 feet up in the air. Any slight movement and he could fall. It was a trying time for them to keep him stationary and get in the house to get him off the roof," Lynch said.
Police said the home was in deplorable conditions. City officials inspected and condemned it.
Hustek and Barker were both charged with risk of injury to a minor and reckless endangerment.
Both were held on $10,000 bonds.
They are due in Derby Superior Court on Thursday.
