MORONGO BASIN – Two were arrested for felony child endangerment for leaving a 4-year-old girl home alone officials said. On Tuesday evening deputies responded to the home in the 6900 block of Hill View in Joshua Tree for the report of a child crying. The child told the reporting party that she was home alone.
