Police: Georgia man and girlfriend left 6-year-old in car while they went on date

ATLANTA, GA -- A Georgia man and his girlfriend are accused of leaving a 6-year-old boy in a vehicle while they went on a date, reports WSB-TV.

Investigators say the child was in the car alone for nearly 40 minutes.

Surveillance video shows a woman police say is Jacqueline Tabb walking a child out of a restaurant in Alpharetta, Georgia. She then reportedly returned without him.

"We had a 6-year-old that's by himself in a vehicle while custodial dad for this visitation period is inside the restaurant having dinner with his girlfriend," said George Gordon with the Alpharetta Police Department.

From the car, the child called his mother, say police. His mother then called 911.

"Cobb County contacted and also spoke to the 6-year-old boy," said Gordon. "The 6-year-old boy was able to give us succinct details about the street name and basically where he is located."

Police responded and now Tabb, and the boy's father, Aric Keck, are charged with reckless conduct.

WSB-TV reached out to Keck's attorney for comment, but have not heard back.
