LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Child Protective Services is investigating after a naked 6-year-old boy wandered into a west end bar Wednesday night.

According to police, someone spotted the child after he entered the Portland Beer Deport on 37th and Pflanz around 9:30 p.m. on June 9. Police were called and the child was given some clothes as officers investigated.

While questioning witnesses at the bar, officers learned the child lived nearby. They visited the home and talked to the boy's 12-year-old brother who was in charge of watching the 6-year-old, a 2-year-old and an infant.

The boy said he didn't realize the child was gone.

No charges were filed against the mother, but Child Protective Services is investigating.
