A father was arrested after police said he left his children alone for more than an hour in a filthy apartment infested with roaches.

It happened at the Forest Vale Apartments on Forest Vale Lane on May 13.

Gwinnett County police said Dominic Tucker left the children, ages 5, 3 and 1, to pick up their mother from work.

A neighbor called police when the children showed up on her doorstep.

Tucker told officers his brother was supposed to babysit the children.

Police said there was old food on the floor in every room of the apartment and clothes were all over the floor. Police said they also saw a lot of bugs inside the apartment.

Tucker was taken to the Gwinnett County Jail and warrants for cruelty towards children and reckless conduct were obtained.
