Two Arrests in School Bus Incident

Richmond police officers have arrested two people in connection with an incident earlier this week in which a child was left on a Richmond Public School bus.

Irene Jenkins, 60, Richmond and Alvin Matthews, 43, Hopewell surrendered voluntarily to officers Thursday, July 8th. They were each charged with one count of child endangerment, a felony.

These arrests follow an investigation that was begun by police officers immediately after the incident was reported. It was conducted in cooperation with the Richmond School District and the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office.
