FMPD: Man leaves 2 children in SUV at strip club

FMPD: Man leaves 2 children in SUV at strip club

A Fort Myers, Fla, . man has been arrested after, apparently, he allegedly decided it'd be a good idea to leave two children in a auto alone while he popped into a strip club Thursday Night.

23-year-old Willie Lee Jordan, Jr. was arrested Thursday night outside of Scarlett's Cabaret in Fort Myers. He told cops that he was inside for a few minutes.

"He was in there for about 30 to 40 minutes", said Scarlett's general manager Christopher Mays.

A customer heard the infant crying and was able to help the 3-year-old unlock the vehicle.

The cries of the young child got the attention of another customer. "God only knows how much longer an upside down infant has in a vehicle seat". They called the police.

"It's devastating ... it's devastating that people can do that to children ... it really opens your eyes to what goes on in this world, how nasty things can be", Mays said.

Staff inside the club made an announcement in an effort to locate the caretaker of the children.

It's unclear if Jordan has an attorney.

The toddler was able to unlock the door of the vehicle about 11 p.m., before Jordan showed up and Fort Myers Police Department officers arrested him November 9.

Mays told 10 News that he stopped the dancers and announced that he was looking for the father of the two kids.

According to the police report, the Department of Children and Families is conducting a follow-up investigation.
