How would you feel as a parent these days if your kids were taken by a tow truck driver! Cops say Victor Ruiz parked his car in a no-parking zone outside his Houston apartment Thursday and left his two young daughters in the car while he took his groceries inside.
According to court documents, the tow truck driver, whose name has not been released, made the discovery after driving two miles. However, Ruiz’ neighbor, Sade Jones, said she and other neighbors tried to let the driver know when he was hooking up the car.
“When he pulled into the apartments, he hurried up and hooked his thing on the car,”
Jones told Click2Houston.com
“I’m, like, ‘Wait! Them kids in the car.’ He snapped the picture and hurry up and sped off with these peoples’ cars.”
Ruiz was charged with two counts of abandoning a child because the kids were allegedly left without supervision.
He is currently in jail on $4,000 bond.
