PELHAM BAY, The Bronx — Parents of a Kindergarten student in the Bronx claim their son was improperly left alone at a bus stop after school Monday.

"I didn't see my daddy," Rafael Sanchez, 5, told PIX11. "I went walking to find him."

Sanchez is a student at PS 392 in the Bronx. His father Edgar says Rafael was picked up from school by his bus, but dropped off at a stop early before a guardian arrived to pick him up.

The father says the driver is supposed to wait for a parent or return the child to the school.

"He was scared," Edgar Sanchez said.

A stranger helped the 5-year-old find his building and a neighbor called Rafael's parents.
