BROOKHAVEN, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man left his 1-year-old daughter home alone while he tried to break into neighbors' houses in a Philadelphia suburb.

Authorities say it happened Wednesday morning in Brookhaven. They say 20-year-old Arthur Langley was arrested after a resident called 911 to report a suspicious person.

The Delaware County Times reports (http://bit.ly/RQScg4 ) Langley allegedly told police he had been looking for places people sometimes leave keys, and then mentioned he'd left his daughter home alone.

Police went to his house and found the girl in a child seat watching television. Police called the girl's mother to come pick her up.

Langley is being held on $100,000 bail on charges including attempted burglary and endangering the welfare of a child. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
