The father of a boy who was left on the doorstep of a Spring home Wednesday night said a friend dropped the child off at the wrong house.
The incident was reported about 8:20 p.m. at a home in the 30700 block of Legends Ridge Drive.
According to Montgomery County deputies, a woman called 911 and said that she found a boy on her stoop after hearing a knock at her door.
Investigators said surveillance video shows a woman arrive at the home in a white car, run to the front door of the home, lift the child by one arm to place him on the porch, ring the doorbell several times, knock on the door, run back to the car and leave. The entire incident took 23 seconds.
The boy’s father, who identified the boy as 2-year-old Royal Simmons, told KPRC2’s Taisha Walker that the friend dropped his son off at a neighbor’s home instead of his house.
