Mohegan – A pair of Bronx, N.Y., residents are due to appear in a Norwich court later this month on charges they left a 5-year-old child alone at the Mohegan Sun casino hotel.
Hong T. Hguyen, 37, and Nghia N. Bui, 38, were each charged Monday with leaving a child under the age of 12 unsupervised.
Mohegan Tribal Police said the 5-year-old was discovered by a casino patron in an elevator.
Police said they determined the child was left alone in the hotel for a prolonged period of time. The relationship between the child and the two Bronx residents is unclear.
Free on a $500 cash bond, Hguyen and Bui are due to appear July 17 in Norwich Superior Court.
