Three Meriden residents charged after toddlers found hanging out third-floor window


MERIDEN — Three local residents are facing charges after police responded to a report of young children hanging out of a third floor window.

Marissa Muniz, 30, Sarah Muniz, 23 and Jose Rodriguez, 21, all of 160 Miller St., were each charged Wednesday with two counts of risk of injury to a minor. They were released on $10,000 bond.

Lt. Sal Nesci, police spokesman, said police responded to 160 Miller St. at about 1 p.m. and found two small children hanging out a third-floor window.

Rodriguez told police the children belonged to Marissa Muniz, the sister of his girlfriend, Sarah Muniz, Nesci said. Rodriguez and Sarah Muniz, who was also in the apartment, said they did not know where Marissa Muniz was and that she had not told them she was leaving the apartment.

Nesci said when Marissa Muniz is not in the apartment, it is Rodriguez and Sarah Muniz’s responsibility to watch the children, ages 2 and 3.

When Marissa Muniz returned to the apartment, she was also charged, Nesci said.

The Department of Children and Families was notified and the children were put in the custody of a family member, Nesci said.
