Woman arrested for prostitution left 18-month-old home alone, documents show

Alexis Buchanan was arrested for prostitution when officers learned that she left her 18-month-old daughter home alone in deplorable conditions.

A woman arrested for prostitution Wednesday may also face a charge of child abuse after her 18-month-old daughter was found alone with a heavily-soiled diaper.

Police performed a welfare check at Alexis Buchanan's town home after she told arresting officers that her daughter was at her home alone, according to court records.

Court documents show the child also had hardened food stuck to her face and a shard of glass on one of her feet when police arrived at the house.

Officers said there were several piles of dog feces on the carpet and a number of small objects within reach the toddler could have choked on.

Officers also reported that the child was crying when they entered the home, according to court documents. They changed her diaper, then called the Phoenix Fire Crisis Response Team, who removed the child from the home.

Alexis Buchanan was arrested near 4100 W Camelback Road after agreeing to have anal sex with an undercover officer arranged through an advertisement on Backpage.com, court records show.
