YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown woman went from her kitchen to the county jail after a city police officer came knocking at her door.

Thirty-four-year-old Lisa Marie Patrick was arrested Thursday after a police officer says he found a little boy believed to be two or three years old, standing on a sidewalk watching cars go by on Loveland Avenue at around noon.

The child apparently had climbed over a wooden gate, leaving three other siblings on the porch.

The boy told the officer he didn't know where his mother was. When asked who was watching him the boy replied “the police”.

After taking the child to the porch, the officer spotted the mother in the kitchen and began to question her about her children.

The officer says when Patrick began refusing to answer his questions, he asked her to come over to his cruiser to talk.

When she refused and began walking away, the officer says he warned that she would be arrested if she didn't stop.

According to the report, Patrick tried to pull away from the officer two times when he grabbed her wrist to place her in handcuffs.

Eventually, Patrick was arrested and charged with endangering children and resisting arrest.

Patrick's husband was summoned home from work to care for the children.
