Man Arrested On Nesconset Highway For Leaving Children In Car Unattended


Suffolk County Police today arrested an Islip man for leaving his two children unattended in a vehicle in Lake Grove.

Fourth Precinct officers responded to 2233 Nesconset Highway after a 911 caller reported two children left unattended in a parked 2012 Honda Pilot, which was not running and unlocked. When officers arrived, they determined the children, a 4-year-old girl and 1-year old boy, had been left in the vehicle by their father, Christopher Evans, for approximately 20 minutes while he attended a doctor’s appointment. The temperature was approximately 35 degrees at the time.

Evans, 41, was charged with two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child. He will be held overnight at the Fourth Precinct and arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on December 6.

The children were released to a family member. 

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
