A Virginia father is in a lot of trouble after being accused of leaving his 1-year-old twin girls in his vehicle, which was parked in a driveway, before engaging in sex with a woman about 30 feet away from it, CBS 6 reports.
"We went around to the back of the duplex and discovered a male and a female engaging in sexual intercourse," Prince George Police Capt. Brian Kei told the news station. "At that point they [police] made contact with the individual, who identified himself as the father of the two twins."
The woman involved, who authorities say was not the mother of the children, was charged with indecent exposure but was released at the scene.
The twins have been placed in protective custody.
According to CBS6, the authorities were alerted after nearby residents heard the children crying.
"There have been so many child deaths in vehicles and parents not paying attention. It would be on my conscience," one neighbor said.
