BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

39-year-old Kama Waltz is booked in the Washington County Jail after allegedly leaving her 5-year-old grandchild locked outside her apartment. Deputies say Waltz was intoxicated and didn't answer the door when the 5-year-old returned from school after being dropped off the school bus.

The incident happened Friday afternoon at the Canyon Park Apartments on Southwest 107th Avenue. The girl knocked for several minutes on the door before contacting the apartment manager. Deputies also knocked on the door for 15 minutes and had to use a key to enter the apartment.

When police went inside, they found Waltz, who was extremely intoxicated. She was arrested for criminal mistreatment and child abuse and taken to jail. The child was placed with a relative. Waltz will be arraigned on Monday afternoon.
