NORWALK - Police arrested two parents after they say their children were left in their SUV while they allegedly drank at a Norwalk bar for hours.

Officials say 32-year-old Franklin Torres-Barrera and 33-year-old Gina Rodriguez-Zumba left their two children in the vehicle on Sunday morning at Club El Dorado.

Police say an officer saw the car in the parking lot and noticed the two children, a 1-year-old and a 7-year-old.

The father and mother said that they were only in the bar for a few minutes, but police say a doorman at the bar says the couple was inside for hours.

Police say the children are OK. The parents have posted bond and are due in court next month.
