Woman Left Daughter, 3, In Car Outside Strip Club While She Danced, Cops Allege

While her mother worked the pole inside, a three-year-old girl was roaming around the parking lot of a Florida strip club early yesterday morning, police report.

Responding to a 911 call about the unsupervised child, police found the girl--crying and confused--alone outside the all-nude Vegas Cabaret in Lauderhill, a Broward County city, around 2 AM.

The child had apparently been sleeping inside a Toyota Corolla that was not running and had a window cracked open for ventilation. In the rear of the car, cops reported, were toys and a car seat.

Around 2:30 AM, Manouchika Daniels, 23, approached officers and identified herself as the child’s mother. According to police, Daniels had left her daughter unattended in the parking lot for about three hours.

Seen above, Daniels was arrested on a felony child neglect charge and booked into the county jail, where the Miami resident is locked up in lieu of $5000 bond.

Daniels’s daughter, police reported, “appeared to be well cared for and in good spirits” as she and officers awaited the arrival of child welfare workers (who eventually took custody of the girl).
