Man in custody after his 3-year-old left home alone

A Windsor man is in police custody after leaving his toddler home alone.

Police say the 40-year-old father got into a bar fight on Seminole Street near Central Avenue early this morning.

As paramedics were treating him, he told them his three-year-old child was home alone.

When police officers went to the house, the child answered the door with no clothes on.

The child is now in the care of the Children's Aid Society.
