A Reading man was charged with endangering his grandchild after he left the 4-year-old girl unattended at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, police said.
State police said 63-year-old Felix Cruz left his granddaughter wander on her own while he wagered on horse races.
The girl was left unsupervised for a period of more than 50 minutes while Cruz was at the casino in East Hanover Township on Aug. 30, police said.
Cruz was issued a summons Thursday charging him with endangering the welfare of a child.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Oct. 28.
