CPS worthy?

I live in an apartment complex and about 15 min ago my boyfriend saw a small child running around outside alone. We watched for a second to see if there was an adult when I realized there wasnt I walked down there and found an open door where he obviously came out of and walked him in and said HELLO loudly but no one answered so I shut the door with the kid in the house.

Now I get that things like that happen and that's not what I'm worried about the most, what I'm worried about is the state of the house. It stunk horribly, like filth and roaches and was really messy and cluttered.

Chalk it up to a really bad day or call CPS?

I would call the police dept and let them handle things.

I really really think if it was cps worthy you wouldn't have to second guess it.

So you left the child is an apartment alone, when you don't even know its that child's apartment? I really hope that you aren't that stupid, and that this is a troll post.

screw cps, at this moment I'd be calling the police... You essentially left a preschooler alone in a rat trap apt after watching him run around outside alone. 

cops. now

Call the apartment manager and let them go see if the child is home alone. If he is, they will call CPS.

It was apparent it was his house.

Id say call the police. My concern being you found a child and put that child in a home that you aren't sure has an adult in it. For all you know they could be passed out and if the child got out once they could do it again. Id call police just to be safe.
