MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (AP) – An Indiana man is accused of child neglect after deputies said he left a young girl by herself at a haunted house on Florida’s Space Coast. 

Deputies said Charles Jones didn’t bother to go back to pick her up. He was arrested Thursday, Halloween night, after turning himself in at a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office precinct. 

WFTV in Orlando reports the girl is the 5-year-old daughter of Jones, but an arrest report had the girl’s age and relationship to Jones redacted.
