CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local mother is under arrest after her 4-year-old daughter was found wandering the streets alone and naked.

Jennifer Staud, 34, faces one count of endangering children.

Passing motorists found the girl wandering along Gaines Road and alerted police.

Police then went to Staud's home, where they had to knock on the door repeatedly to wake her up. She had been sleeping on the couch.

Staud was released on her own recognizance. She will be in court next month.
