A Wichita Falls woman is behind bars after police say she left her four year old alone at home so she could go to a bar.

27-year-old Tommie Courville is charged with abandoning or endangering a child.

Police said she asked her neighbors to watch her daughter so she could go out but, when they refused officials say she went anyway.

Authorities said Courville told the neighbors the child’s father was coming to pick her up.

Police said the neighbors found the girl playing in the front yard by herself and brought her inside.

When neither the father or Courville came back to pick her up the neighbors called the police.

Bond is set at $40,000.
