There have now been two child endangerment cases since last Friday, according to Cincinnati Police Public Information Officer Emil Szink.

A police report claims Okwuenubunwayo Nwamu, who is the guardian of a three-year-old boy, is facing similar charges.

Nwamu left the young boy inside of a car for more than three hours while temperatures outside were above 80 degrees, court documents said.

The child was taken to Children’s Hospital with a high temp but is doing okay.

Nwamu was released from jail without bond and is expected to appear in court sometime in August.
