IOWA CITY, Iowa - An Iowa City woman is facing charges after police found a four-year-old outside her home unattended early Saturday morning.

37 year old Sylvia Tribble has been charged with four counts of child endangerment.

At around 3:08 a.m. on Saturday, November 16, an Iowa City Police officer located a 4-year-old boy on the front porch of 819 1/2 Fairchild Street.

The child told the officer that nobody was home and that his mom and dad had left.

An 8- and a 9-year-old girl were found inside the home sleeping.

Moments later, another officer responded to a call regarding an intoxicated woman, who turned out to be Tribble.

She was allegedly with a 1-year-old child at the Casey's General Store located at 204 N Dubuque Street. The officer described Tribble as having a strong odor of alcohol and bloodshot, watery eyes.

Tribble consented to a preliminary breath test, which registered a .176 BAC.
