Pittsburgh mom charged after neighbor finds 2 kids far from home, police say

PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh woman has been charged after police said another woman found her two children wandering in the East Hills neighborhood on Tuesday.

The two children, one a baby in a diaper and the other barely dressed without shoes, were roaming around their neighborhood on East Hills Drive around 3:20 p.m. -- even crossing the road and wandering through two parking lots for nearly 40 minutes, police said.

The neighbor recorded the entire situation on Facebook Live, police said, and drove them to the security office.

When the children’s mother, Tevanna Keith, came to get them, the video turns violent and disturbing.

Keith can be seen slapping one child across the face.

When police were made aware of the video, Channel 11 observed saw them going door to door and trying to get in touch with Keith.

Police tried to track her down later in the evening, then went back to the apartment the next morning to arrest her.

Keith is now charged with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of children. The children were in good health with no apparent injuries, police said. CYF and ChildLine now have an open case.
