Fort Worth police are looking for a man they said left a child in a yard overnight Thursday.

Police were called to the 5100 block of Ollie Street after being told a man left a baby there.

Police said the situation started earlier in the night when the child's mother left to buy drugs and got arrested. The woman called a man police said is a known gang member.

That man took the child to his brother's house, where the two got into an argument, police said. The man then left and took the child to his niece's house on Ollie Street.

Police said the man left the child in the yard at his niece's home. The niece and grandmother were home at the time and took care of the child until police arrived.

Child Protective Services now has custody of the child.

Police said they don't yet know what charges the man may face.
