PHOENIX - A little boy is safe with his mother Thursday thanks to a quick thinking Ahwatukee resident.
Phoenix police said the citizen found the 3-year-old boy wandering around the Mountainside Apartments near Ranch Circle and Ray Road early Thursday.
When officers arrived at the complex, they said they learned the boy's older sister left the apartment door unlocked after she left for work.
Officers said the boy left the apartment to give his puppy a walk.
According to Officer James Holmes, the boy was reunited with his mother. There were no signs of neglect.
