People were horrified at the sight of a young boy roaming the street armed with an ax.

Police were called after the 2-year-old boy was seen walking alone without adult supervision.

The child was armed with the ax as he roamed the streets in Arkansas.

Izard County Sheriff’s deputies arrested the couple, who were caring for the boy when he was found walking in the rain carrying the ax.

Mary Katherine Dehli, 32, and James Edward Filchack, 40, of Oxford, were arrested and were charged with second degree child endangerment.

Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence said that the two were arrested after a neighbor called to report a small boy “roaming the neighborhood carrying an ax.”

Dehli and Filchack appeared before District Judge David E. Miller, who set a court date for the pair, and they were released from the Izard County Detention Facility.
