Ebony Johnson, 40

A mother was arrested in Lubbock on Tuesday and accused of leaving her child for four days. A report said the child had “no food” for two days “and that this [was] an ongoing issue.”

Ebony Johnson, 40, was taken to the Lubbock County Detention Center.

According to a police report, her child called police and said she could not open the front door.

The girl told a Lubbock police officer she had not eaten in around two days. She showed the officer a receipt from Sunday for a McDonald’s order received via a food delivery service and said that was the last time she ate.

The officer searched the house and found trash scattered through the hallways and bedrooms and no edible food in the fridge, the report said.
