Dad accused of threatening to throw kids in dumpster

KANSAS CITY, MO (WCMH) — A Missouri man is in jail after witnesses report he was walking around a parking lot trying to give away his children.

Evrald Mombo, 27, walked through a parking lot with his two children on Halloween night, asking others if they wanted a couple of kids, WDAF reports.

After initially thinking he was joking, witnesses told police they realized he was serious. Police say Mombo started to walk away from the children while the three-year-old boy and one-year-old girl were crying hysterically.

Police say Mombo said the children’s mother is in jail and that if someone didn’t take them, he would throw them in the dumpster.

When officers stopped by Mombo’s home, they say they found roaches, flies and a refrigerator full of rotten and spoiled food. There was no electricity.

Mombo was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
