Philadelphia police are investigating a case of a little girl left alone in her backyard.

Officers were called to the 500 block of West Eleanor Street in Olney around 5:30 p.m.

Neighbors say a 3-year-old girl, wearing pajamas, but barefoot, had been crying for several hours.

They couldn't reach her because of a fence.

When police arrived, they found the child's mother asleep inside the home.

Police tell Action News no charges will be filed.
