A woman who abandoned her 3-year-old and 5-year-old daughters in front of a Brooklyn housing project on Sunday afternoon has been arrested, the police said.
The woman, Dalisha Adams, 26, is charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, the police said.
The girls, whose names were reported by The Daily News as Domini and Dioni, were found around 2:45 p.m. by a good Samaritan standing near the Bay View Houses at East 102nd Street and Shore Parkway in Canarsie, the police said.
Domini, the older girl, told officers that they lived in “a blue house with flowers in front” and that their mother’s name was Dalisha, The News reported. Ms. Adams lives in the Breukelen public-housing complex
on Glenwood Road near East 105th Street, the police said, about a mile and a half from where the girls were left.
The police said Monday that the girls were in good condition and had been placed in the care of the Administration for Children’s Services, which did not immediately respond to an inquiry about them.
