Police: Child caretaker overdosed, patronized prostitute

HARRINGTON (AP) — Police in Delaware say a man overdosed after agreeing to pay a woman for sex, leaving the prostitute with a 10-year-old child he had been caring for to handle the consequences.

WMDT-TV reports that emergency responders administered Narcan to 58-year-old Charles Reynolds to reverse the opioid overdose on Friday.

The Harrington police report says they found the 10-year-old child at the home with the prostitute.

Reynolds was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute upon his release from the hospital, and later released from jail on $1,100 bail. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
