JUNCTION CITY, Ky. – Junction City police say two parents are facing charges after their child walked out of their apartment and began knocking on strangers’ doors.

A Boyle County grand jury has indicted Enic Anderson and Amy Carmicle on a charge of criminal abuse following the Jun. 8 incident involving their 2-year-old child. Police originally charged the couple with wanton endangerment but were indicted on the more serious felony charge.

Police say the couple was asleep at their home when their son left and walked to a nearby apartment complex. The child was shoeless and was only wearing a soiled diaper and t-shirt.

The child started knocking on doors. One person answered and called police for assistance.

Police contacted the couple, and they said Carmicle appeared to be under the influence at the time. She claimed Anderson and herself were in the back cleaning when the child escaped. Anderson would have a different story, as he told police he was asleep on the couch.

A family member was given custody of the child.
