Hastings Minnesota 745 Spiral Boulevard 55033

A Hastings man was arrested Sunday afternoon after his 2-year-old son was found walking barefooted near 15th and Vermillion streets.

At about 3 p.m. Sunday, Hastings police received a call that a 2-year-old boy was wandering around without supervision. The boy was carrying two bottles of Mike's Hard Lemonade. Officers canvassed the area and searched for the child's parents. They could not be found, so the child was taken to the police department for about two hours while the search continued.

Officers found the man to be intoxicated and he was arrested for child endangerment. His name is Robert Rasset.

The boy was transferred to his mother, who does not live with Rasset.
