The woman dropped off the child around 8:40 p.m. after the father left his home - but at the wrong house.

A woman could be facing charges after abandoning a friend's child on a stranger's doorstep at a Texas home Wednesday. Once the suspect arrived at the front door she rang the doorbell, knocked on the door, then fled back to her vehicle leaving the two-year-old child alone.

Authorities know the woman's identity but will not release her name. "When the child did not show up at the residence the father assumed that plans had changed with the mother and he then left the residence for the evening". Instead, she asked a friend to drop her boy off. The sheriff's office said in doing so, it placed the child in grave danger. Officials say the mother had been in the hospital during the incident and was released on Thursday morning.

Surveillance footage from a doorbell security camera captured the moment a toddler was left abandoned outside a stranger's home in the middle of the night in a suburb of Houston, Texas, Oct. 17, 2018.

The woman inside the home opened the door after she heard the knock, the sheriff's office said on Facebook, and she called police.
