HOUSTON A family outing led to a trip to jail for a Houston dad who allegedly left his daughter and two nieces alone for two hours at RodeoHouston.

Ralph Robinson, 22, is charged with three counts of child abandonment.

According to police, Robinson took the three girls, ages 4, 6 and 7, to the show Sunday night.

But a woman sitting next to the kids said Robinson left the girls there for two hours, returning only once to check on them.

The woman called security, and guards took the kids into custody and detained Robinson until police arrived.

Robinson was taken to the Harris County Jail, where he remained Monday on $6,000 bond.
