CANOGA PARK ( — A 4-year-old child was found early Monday wandering the streets of a San Fernando Valley neighborhood.

The boy was found by a Woodland Hills resident around 1:55 a.m. in the 23000 block of Friar Street, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

“It was really loud . . . so I slid the bathroom window open and looked out and the little boy was on my porch, just bawling,” Jeff Rios said.

Rios called police who located the child’s parents at a residence a few blocks away.

The boy’s mother said the child has a history of getting out a bed and wondering around the house.

“He must have gone to his brother’s room and found the cracked window, I don’t know,” the child’s mother tearfully told CBS2’s Louisa Hodge. “I was woken up with the police knocking on my door,” she said.

The boy will be evaluated by Child and Family Services before he is returned to his mother and grandmother.
