Scottsdale, AZ (KPHO) — A Mesa dad faces child abuse charges after he allegedly left his two children in a parked car while he was at a Scottsdale casino early Wednesday morning.

The children, ages 2 and 3, were found in the vehicle on the upper level of Talking Stick Resort’s parking garage at 9800 E. Indian Bend Rd. by security officers with the casino’s bike patrol, a court document stated.

Salt River police officers found Thomas Devereux, 29, with his girlfriend on the main floor of the casino at around 2:50 a.m..

Devereux was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on one count of child abuse and one count of endangering the life of a minor.
