Houston mom arrested after daughters found alone at motel

HOUSTON - A Houston mom was arrested after police said she left her two little girls alone at a northwest Houston motel.

Unshone Harrison, 45, is charged with child abandonment.

The manager at Hotel Varela she saw the girls, ages 4 and 6, playing in a motel hallway. She took care of them for several hours. When their mother still hadn’t come home by 11 p.m., the manager called police.

When officers arrived, they described the family’s motel room as “unsanitary and unkempt.”

The girls were taken to a hospital to be checked out. The 4-year-old had a black eye and a bruise on her face. Her mother told investigators she was hurt while playing.

Harrison told officers she left the girls alone while she went to work and had done it several times before, according to HPD.

The girls are now in CPS custody.
