It's scary enough for a little kid to be left alone . . . without being left in the scariest place possible.
There's a 35-year-old guy named Charles Jones in Merritt Island, Florida. And on Halloween, he took his five-year-old daughter to a haunted house . . . and then left her there.
She was alone at the haunted house for at least two-and-a-half hours before the police finally tracked down Charles.
He was arrested for child neglect.
