Babysitter arrested after child found wandering down a Palermo road

Damon Allen

An Oswego County babysitter was arrested after one of the children left in his care was found wandering down a road in Palermo.

27-year-old Damon Allen, of Fulton, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and possession of marijuana.

When deputies found the boy walking in the middle of the street, their investigation led them to Allen who was supposedly watching this child and others. Officials say the child was under the age of 15.

Deputies also found Allen to be in possession of marijuana.

Allen is due in court next Monday to answer to the charges.
