A 22-year-old mother was cited by Chattanooga police after she left her 4-year-old son unattended to go to work at a gas station.
The child left the residence located at 1020 W. 37th St. on Aug. 30 and began walking the streets, searching for his mother, according to an incident report.

Honeysucker is scheduled to go before General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon on Sept. 29.
