The parents of a Warren toddler could face abuse and abandonment charges after police say they took their child to celebrate his 3rd birthday at Caesarland on Saturday night and left without him. Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer said the child's parents, a 33-year-old woman and 41-year-old man, took the boy to the Chuck E. Cheese-style restaurant for a party. Around 9 p.m., the manager spotted the child and couldn't find anyone to claim him. Warren police were called and contacted Child Protective Services, which placed the boy in foster care.

Dwyer said the child's parents were questioned today and both claim that up until Sunday, they both thought the other adult had the child or that he could be with a grandmother, who lives in Detroit. Even so, Dwyer said the mother never contacted police and waited until today to call Caesarland to inquire about her son. The child's father today went to the restaurant on Hoover between 10 Mile and 11 Mile.
"I've never heard of a situation like this in all my years where you have a birthday party for a 3-year-old and everybody forgets about him," said Dwyer, adding the parents never reported the incident to police and waited a full 36 hours to check with the restaurant.
