A Baton Rouge woman is accused of leaving her three small children at home alone in squalid living conditions.

After receiving an anonymous tip, police on Saturday found the children — ages 1, 3 and 5 — alone at an apartment on Jade Ave., according to the arrest report.

The 3-year-old child had swollen eyes and was covered in welts, police said. It’s unclear how those injuries happened.

The apartment also had no beds or electricity, and had feces and urine on the floors, police said.

Officers went to a neighbor’s home to ask the whereabouts of the children’s mother, Jasmine Moore, 24, police said. The neighbor called Moore, who arrived about 15 minutes later.

Moore, 1656 Jade Ave., Apt. B, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of cruelty to juveniles, child desertion and criminal abandonment.
