A couple from Brooklyn were arrested for abandoning their two young daughters in a car while they gambled

Two parents from Brooklyn, Maria Loja (33), and Segundo Japa (34) were arrested shortly after midnight on Friday the 7th of August and charged with two counts of acting in a manner injurious to a minor. The drama began when a security guard spotted two young girls sitting in a Black SUV in the Resorts World Casino parking in Ozone Park. It was then that the casino contacted the New York City Police Department. Police officers arrived at the scene shortly afterwards and let the two young girls, aged 6 and 8 out of the car. The girls were taken inside the casino to find their parents, before being transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for evaluation. The girls were then turned over to the city’s Administration for Children’s Services. The parents of the two young girls were arrested and charged with two counts of acting in a manner injurious to a minor.
