Angela Jackson, 42, and Tobias Reed, 34, both of the 200 block of Center St., were each charged with child endangering and disorderly conduct intoxicated.
Jackson and Reed were celebrating Easter at a relative’s Townsend Street home when they told Jackson’s 10- and 12-year-old children, and Reed’s 8- and 10-year-old children to walk back to their Center Street home at about 3 a.m., Reed told police.
Jackson’s teenage son was home at the time. He said he heard the children return home but never spoke with them, according to a police report. When the mother of Reed’s daughters arrived and no one knew where her children were, she called police.
The kids were later found at a friend’s house, also on Center Street. They said they argued with Jackson’s son when they returned home, prompting them to leave again and go to their friend’s house, the report said.
The couple were held at the Erie County jail.
