Allegheny Township police charged a woman with endangering the welfare of children after two young kids were found unattended in the Sandalwood housing complex on Tuesday evening.

Police were called about 7 p.m. Tuesday to check on a 6-year-old girl seen roaming outside the complex off Hyde Park Road.

When they went to the apartment of her mother, Rikki Mae Hoessler, 24, police said they found her and her boyfriend, Eugene George Smorey II, 27, of Leechburg asleep inside. A 1-year-old boy was unsupervised inside the apartment, police said.

Hoessler was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of children and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. She remained in the Westmoreland County jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond on Thursday night.

Smorey, who police said is not permitted to be at the Sandalwood complex, was charged with trespassing. He was still in jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.
