(Scroll down for video) A young boy called police and asked them for food after he was left to care for his 10-month-old brother.

Darnisha Robinson of Indiana, was arrested after she left her children home alone.

She faces charges of child neglect for leaving her 5-year-old son and 10-month-old child alone in an apartment without any food.

Robinson’s son called police on Friday, to seek help from the police because he was hungry and did not know what to do.

Police in Mishawaka, responded to the home with takeout food and toys. Officials said that the apartment was in terrible condition.

Police said that the children had been left home alone for more than 4 hours. Witnesses said that the children’s mother finally appeared after Child Protective Services was called to investigate.

A neighbor said that officers played with the boys in order to distract them so they don’t see their mother being taken away in handcuffs.
