A Beaufort man is charged with child abuse after police say he left his two small children home alone this past weekend.
Brandon Adkins was arrested Saturday, according to Beaufort police.
Police say Adkins' wife came home around noon Saturday and had to crawl through a window to get inside. She found her children, ages 2 years old and five months old, alone in the apartment. The wife said she discovered the place is disarray, a television had been thrown near the baby's crib and a bottle of bleach had been poured all around the living room.
Police were told the wife was gone for about 30 minutes.
The 22-year-old Adkins received a $2000 secured bond and has a March 22nd court date.
