ROSELAWN, Ohio -- (WXIX) -- A 23-year-old mother of three is in trouble after leaving her children home alone around midnight Friday to go party at a club, Cincinnati police said.

Shaira Brookins has a 3-year-old, 4-year-old, and 6-month-old.

"I came out and I saw the little boys over here and a baby over there," said neighbor Mark Fritz, who was leaving for work Saturday around 7 a.m.

Still sleepy, he looked across the way.

"I was like, 'Is that a baby?' So, I ran over there, grabbed the baby, picked the baby up, the diaper fell off because it was wet and drenched," Fritz said.

The baby was riding in a pull toy, Fritz said, and it looked like the baby was about to roll down the front steps.

"I'm just glad the baby hadn’t fallen and busted his head," he said.

Fritz knocked on the front door, but no one answered. It turns out, the door was unlocked, so he went inside, fearing the worst.

"Somebody could have been dead in the house or whatever,” said Fritz. “I didn't know, so I went in, and the house looked abandoned."

A neighbor called 911 while he stayed with the kids. Fritz asked them where their parents were.

"They're like, 'We don't know. Mommy down there,' whatever," Fritz said.
