HARRIS COUNTY – On April 13, 2021, deputies with Constable Mark Herman’s Office responded to the 16112 block of the North Freeway in reference to a citizen who found a two-year-old child walking next to the feeder road.
Upon deputies arriving, they took custody of the child and checked nearby hotels. They located an open door at the Super 8 hotel nearby and found an eight-year-old asleep with his three-year-old brother with no adults present.
The children did not know where their mother was and stated that the two-year-old child was their sister.
The mother, who was later identified as Juliana Gomez later arrived at the location and stated she knowingly left the children at the hotel room to go eat with a friend.
Child Protectives Services were contacted and took custody of the children.
Juliana Gomez was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Child Endangerment.
